Definitive answer from Volvo on the blank screwdriver. You are supposed to leave the screwdriver with the blank in To prevent putting holes in the leather seat. Apparently, this is an issue , especially in FL

Definitely possible... I've never figured out how to use it. My spares are all held down by that strap.
