Bolster tearing seat

My bolster is tearing into my seat on both sides. Has anyone else seen this? Do you know if the bolster is adjustable? Is this something I should turn into warranty? I feel like it's pretty nitpicky, but I worry that it's a pretty high stress area for the vinyl and the tear could continue to expand in the future. Then again, if there's no adjustment, what would keep the same thing from happening again if I do get it fixed?

My 2015 X10 was tearing as well after less than 1 season because of the bolster. In my case it was replaced under warranty. I haven't had any issues two seasons later.

My X2 bolster rubbed through the seat cushion on both sides in a little over 1 year. MC replaced the entire center cushion of the chair. I just contacted my dealer today since my new cushion has rubbed through both sides, He wanted a video of the bolster being moved to show how it rubs through the base and close up pics of the damage. They will order another one when they get approval. My X2 is 3 months from running out of the 5 yr warranty. Not the best design IMO maybe that's why they changed the set up with the new captain chair in 2017?

I was referring to where the bolster contacts at the base of the seat.i just checked that portion of my cushion. The right side is fine and doesn't really get squished when I move the bolster. The left side has some slight tearing and gets squished some. It's not near as bad as what your video shows.

My bolster seat has similar tears 2015 X20 as the second picture. When I raised it with the dealer he quoted me $260 to replace the cushion.

Same wear on the sides of the bottom cushion on my 2014 X30. it was replaced under Warranty. They made the seat cushion narrower to prevent rubbing in the future. That does not address the OP concern..but it is a warranty issue.
