Rear Bulb Holder MK1 C4 Picasso (Not Grand)

Post by bigtone0777 »

Does anyone know if you can get an aftermarket rear bulb holder? I've checked my local factor but they don't list one and nothing on Euro Car Parts site.

Could this be a dealer only part? I'd be surprised if it is as it seems a common problem.

What exact bulb holder are you referring to? Rear Tailgate, rear body lamp holder, rear courtesy light???

Sorry I should have been more clear. I's for the NSR cluster on the quarter panel with the tail lamp, brake lamp and indicator bulb. The pins where the harness plugs into have corroded and causing issues with the indicator.

I'll need the VIN for this car (as I only have your Picasso one) as there are some variants.

The VIN is VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]

I don't own the Xsara Picasso any more, if I remember correctly I broke that one!

Ok, so have a squiz at the diagram. The rear cluster comes as a complete unit apart from item (5) which is the 'Light Skirt'.

So item (1) is the rear cluster on the wing.

There are 2 possibilities for the vehicle (probably as a result of range changes midway through production), As your front headlamp is classified as "Except Range Activity", I would suggest you need 6350CA from the choices below:
6350CA is the one ("Except Range Activity") £107.78
6350LQ ("Range Activity") £167.94

Prices as of today all inc. of VAT from Citroen.

Thanks for that Marc. I was hoping the bulb holder would come as a separate part and preferably aftermarket. For that kind of cost I think the soldering iron will be coming out :rofl2:

Sorry but this is 2021 :rofl2: It's all 'plug and play and throw away' these days.

But with the part numbers you can source a second hand unit....

They are available from £16.99....

It seems such a waste doesn't it especially with all these environmental issues we keep getting battered over the head with.

My concern with second hand is that it will end up with the same issue very quickly as it seems to be quite common.

Anyway I think I'll have a go at soldering some wires direct to the tracks and if I break it altogether I'll get a second hand one.

Thanks for your help Marc, it's appreciated
