    Default C4 Picasso info

    Hi
    We recently bought a 01/2008 Citroen C4 Picasso at an auction. We like it much but it is literally blowing apart! Well, not totally, but on a recent windy day in Perth, driving down a busy HWY, the corner window seal/trim on the bottom of the little side widow, driver side, blew off and got lost! Upon checking the one on the passenger side, it was very loose and easy to pop off as well. (see attached pic.)
    Has any one come across this problem before? Does this part come loose over time or was it not clicked-in properly in the first place!?!
    Now, a dealer has quoted nearly $400 for one replacement part from France! Does any one know of any less expensive options?

    Also, as much as we love the enormous windscreen of the Picasso, we have not yet been able to find a fitting sun shade. Any ideas will be much appreciated.
    Cheers

    I guess it's just unlucky that it fell off. Try BM spares in Melbourne for a used one or see if you can't track one down overseas as an alternative.

    You could pull the sunvisors down and that will reduce the size the screen you need to cover. Otherwise, if no retailer can find you a larger one, join two together perhaps?

    $400 for a trim piece? Crazy. I'm sure that you can find one from a wreckers as David suggests.

    As for the windscreen shade, there are some companies around that custom make reflective shades, or perhaps a truck parts place might have larger sizes.

    By "sunshade" do you mean a fitting reflective screen for when the car is parked? If so, try this address - he has made us internally-fitted screens for Xantia, CX and BX and they are brilliant!

    Hi Picasso, welcome to the forum. Interesting to see another Picasso that colour in WA. My brother got one last year ex Vic and we thought it was the only one that colour in the state. Your best bet may be to try one of the independent Citroen service agents/parts suppliers located in the sticky at the top of this forum. Joining a Citroen car club can also be a handy source of info for very little cost

    Cheers,

    Justin.
