Is the armrest covered under warranty?

    Today the clasp which opens and closes the armrest snapped off in my hand along with a thin metal strip like a hairpin.

    So now my armrest will not 'lock' shut. Bearing in mind that I have leather and hence a leather trimmed armrest, should it need a full new lid - it probably will not be as cheap as you'd think.

    So would it be covered under warranty? Surely after 17 months of ownership it shouldn't snap like that?

    Mine snapped too, after about 4 months, had it replaced under warranty but they have to replace the whole unit, not just the lid!
