replaced it...and it broke again!

I replaced the cover about 6 months ago, and it broke again! The plastic cracked right by the rear torx screw, everything else feels intact. Has anyone else had this issue? I can't for the life of me figure out what's going on - it's my wife's car, I rarely drive it so it's not like the seat is going back and forth all the time. and she swears she's not getting in the car by stepping on the cover...

Related question, did anyone have to replace the electrical plug (the one for the seat controls) at the same time? The locking clip on ours has broken off, such that it wiggles loose at the slightest pressure, ie when the plastic cover is broken and moving around.
