Can I fit a spare wheel and carrier to a C4 Grand Picasso - C4GP
I have just bought a 2007 C4 Grand Picasso (For the NEW C4 Picasso B78 - please scroll down the page) and have a pristine puncture kit and air pump. What I would like is to have a spare tyre. The C4 handbook suggests there could be scope for under car storage. Is there a kit I can buy to do this in the Grand Picasso?

Maybe spares for the C4?

I know it isn't possible on an Exclusive due to the Pneumatic suspension.

With the Exclusive models there is no room to carry a spare under the car (lower spec models can have a cradle fitted but the pneumatic suspension on the GP rules that out)

However this is the parts list which shows which bits go where:



Answer:

Yes it's possible (but not on an exclusive) and you will potentially require the following:

C6555T2 - 31R003 Hog Ring x1 @£0.74,

C6913V8 - 31R002 Crimp Bolt x 2 @ £0.77ea,

C6922C7 - 31R001 Self Taper x2 @ £0.36ea,

C6935A6 - 31R003 Nut with Base x 4 @ £0.14ea

C7603Q5 - Z/stack Wheel Open Mechanism x 1 @ £81.10.

All in £85 plus VAT.

Then you require a steel wheel and tyre - basic is £64 plus vat.

Hello, after reading this FAQ have successfully installed the winch for storing a full size spare wheel under the rear of my C4GP. and thought I would post photos for you all.

I bought all the parts listed on the citroen diagram but found I didn't actually need all the parts! and did require an additional wrench extension!

A definitive list of parts I needed:

C7603Q5 - winch mechanism £105 from citroen dealer parts desk
C6935A6 - Nut with Base x 4 £1.50 ish
671750 - extension wrench £13.58
a suitable steel wheel hub from scrapyard £20
a new tyre for the wheel 195/65/R15 £45

All in all this came to about £180, took a lot of tracking down, the parts took a week to come into the dealers, clearly not a common request.

It took about 5mins to bolt on the winch to the underside of the car. the new wheel is a full size wheel, so I will be happy to drive thousands of miles at full speed should I need to!

The clearance under the car has not been affected, as you can see, the lowest part of the tyre is no lower than the exhaust next to it!

Took a trip to Citroen Parts Department and the mechanism he gave me matched the picture above exactly.

1. The lug on the end of the wire now fits perfectly in the centre of the space saver wheel.

2. The holes in the boot floor line up perfectly with the holes in the mechanism.

3. The extension wrench now also fits the mechanism.

4. Didn't need the crimp or self tap bolts, the studs were already in place and long enough.

It was a 10 minute job (tighten 4 nuts) to fix the mechanism under the boot, now the spare resides there comfortably, barely visible from the rear of the car unless you grovel on the floor.

Total cost about £170 (£40 rim from Citroen, £30 tyre from Ebay, £100 mechanism from Citroen)

Please be aware..... fitting full size spares underneath the back of the C4P and GP seriously reduces ground clearance.... as advised in the handbook.

We've just fitted one to a GP and were surprised just how much it protrudes and how visible it is from behind the car.

If you're going to insist on having a full size spare you need to be conscious at all times the reduced clearance. Personally after seeing the full size fitted, I'd be pretty much resigned to making do with a space saver as a back up.

Please Note: C4 Picasso offset is 25. A lower offset will place the wheel further out toward the side of the car, a higher offset places it nearer the middle of the car so aim to get a wheel with an offset as near to the original as possible.
