I have just bought a C3 Picasso (09 plate, 1.4 Exclusive trim) for my wife which we will be collecting in a few days.

It is a great looking vehicle but seems to me missing two rear headrests! The central one is there but the outer ones are not! It looks odd and having priced up from a Citroen dealer at just shy of £400.00 I will be looking elsewhere!

Ebay seems devoid of any at the moment and searching on car parts across the 'net brings up a lot of results!

Are there any specialist Citroen parts / scrapyards that might offer the part at a sensible price?

You could try contacting Mikes.Bits (on eBay), he has a collection of rear headrests for the Picasso over several years and in different trims. Worth giving him a call as his stock changes often (the number is in the link).

That's good news.

Always amazes me that a) not all models have headrests in the back as standard, and b) how many people hang onto them when they sell their car and then go on to sell them on ebay and gumtree!
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:
