I was doing my annual maintenance on my snowblower and one of the scews that hold the scrapper bar has a plastic thing around it that is broken. (was already broken before trying to remove the screw).  So now that screw cannot be tighten anymore...
Recommendation?  I know the scapper bar is a replacable part but my scrapper is still good for at least another season.  Can I use my warranty to this?
Thanks.

Based on your last picture I wonder if just a simple flat washer would work for that location. Looks like the screw is a 4 mm screw so you could get a 4mm (ID) fender (large OD) washer and try. 

I don't believe the scraper bar is a warranty part since it's considered a normal wear part.

However, since it seems it broke in an odd way, could be worth a call to EGO CS to see what they will do for you. Maybe a new scraper? 

Here is a parts list I found online which could help you with part numbers when calling EGO.
