      Second row seat monitors

      Our ďnewĒ Volvo has Volvo branded aftermarket headrest monitors for the second seat. Is there a way to remove these? We donít need them, and my wife just thinks itís an invite for someone to break into the car. Iíve removed the monitors, but can I remove the bases? The one on the passenger side is loose anyway, you can pull, the base away from the seat. Worst case if they canít be removed, is there a way to tighten that one back up?

      First pic is drivers side, nice and solid.
      Second pic is passenger side, pulls away from the seat.

      I donít mind leaving the bases installed.

      See in that second pic (which is sideways) that the base pulls away from the seat? Iíd there a way to tighten that up? It just feels like something is loose. The drivers side doesnít pull away at all but the passenger side does. The seat hits it hard when someone climbs into the back, I think that is what caused it (with the monitor installed). When the monitor is in the base, it really pulls down from the weight of the monitor.

      For the OE tablet holder, the kit comes with a replacement headrest that has a built-in support for the tablet. It may be easier to see if you can detach that add-on part by following similar steps outlined in the OE installation instructions, which allows the headrest to be separated from the seat. See some of the pdf files here: https://accessories.volvocars.com/en...CC-515722/2019

      It involves pulling the seat backing to access the fixtures that secure the headrest. Perhaps the mounting mechanism for that add-on part won't be visible unless you have access to its bottom side (that is hidden from normal view)
