Kid kicked off the OEM rear TV need help

Apparently despite costing close to $3000 for the rear seat entertainment package it is not kid proof. My toddler got pissed and kicked the tv and sheared it off the bracket. IMHO not a great design if it can't withstand some abuse from the kids. Anyhow, dealer wants $100 for the bracket, $300/ea for 2 wiring harnesses (not certain the harnesses broken will test later) and $700 for the labor for a grand total of $1400.00! Can anyone help with a better way to obtain the parts? I've tried getbmwparts.com and can't figure out how to narrow the search to find the parts as I don't have the part numbers. I'm guessing that anyone who can work a torx driver and has some common sense can mount the TV in 5 minutes.

Get part numbers here https://www.realoem.com/ and order them online, doesn't look too complicated to fix.

Solution, take them off and trade in your kid.

Nah, j/k.

Post the pictures of the damage. I'll PM you the part number when I got a chance this weekend.

Ask your SA for the parts number or visit the parts counter. IMHO, rear entertainment isn't worth the expense or risk; I already have enough things to worry about the kids breaking. You could buy them a tablet for less than the cost of rear entertainment, plus its more bang for the buck. Delay fixing it and make the little one learn a lesson. We survived car rides without rear entertainment.
