I've just bought a 2015 Citroen Picasso Blue Platinum. It came with the usual emergency inflation kit & no spare wheel. I'm a belt & braces type & want at least an emergency spare wheel. I've found one on the internet for £89 delivered with jack & wheel brace. Add says tyre new but wheel may show signs of use. Anyone found a cheaper source?

Hi

There are several wheel and tyre specifications fitted to the Picasso, so it will be best if you search for the one you need to match your existing wheels fitted.

Unless you want a space saver?

I wouldn't be without a proper spare wheel, jack and wheel brace as it is not only flat tyres with a tiny hole in them that a spare can fix, but the inflation kits are very restricted in what they can actually achieve and you can run on a full spare for as long as it takes to get the other one fixed.

Yes it's a 15inch space saver I was looking for. Don't think I'm fit enough to change it myself, I'd let the AA do the job.

My Spacesaver wheel kit arrived this morning, (quite impressed). While I was fitting it in the boot, I noticed a black plastic cap towards the rear of the boot, about 50mm in diameter. I removed it & revealed a blue second cap. I didn't have a torch at the time to examine it thoroughly, so finished off loading the boot. I've just had lunch & thinking back to the blue cap, checked the PDF manual to see if it could be a second screen wash filler cap for the rear screen washer. The PDF manual shows nothing at all? Has anyone any clues to what it could be? :roll:

You have found the Adblue filler caps. The spare wheel may not fit in the well as the Adblue tank may take up some space. I don't know whether this applies to C3 Picassos but it certainly applies to earlier C4 Picassos.
