I have a Picasso, 2 years old but new to me. I have been to my local dealer
in E. Yorkshire and they said £62 for it when I gave them the part
number.(8211J5).Protecteur. Anti-glare cover.
Service Manager came and spoke to me when I said that it was free warranty
job. He said that only one person had asked for it to be done but she had
decided against it when he told her
a) that it may not totally cure the reflection problem and
b) that bubbles caused when fitting it might cause even more glare problems.
He also said that they would have to have the Pic for 24 hours to spray on
the glue and let it dry before attaching the anti-glare thingie. Methinks
that he thinks that it is a fablon type cover.
Can anyone tell me if it is a solid bit of kit please? I thought that it was
a black plastic moulding which was attached to the dash with double sided
Dixons in Hull are due to phone me tomorrow. Anybody give me an idea of how
long the fitting takes please as I would like to go and wait while it is
done - but not for 24 hours!!!

I don't know about the Picasso in particular, but polarising sun-glasses
might help, in broad daylight. A Google search didn't bring up much, but
there is a Picasso web-forum at <http://citroenpicasso.org.uk/forum1/ .
The advert there for something called the "DashMat" seems to be a broken
If the problem you have is with a reflection of the large horizontal surface
at the top of the dash being reflected in the windscreen, it's a problem
with my ZX too so any real solutions you find would be of interest. I have
considered trying to get some of the matt black paint used inside cameras,
to paint the 'not quite black and rather too shiny' vinyl (?) surface, but
that might not work and could affect re-sale value (as if the dents
I suspect that your garage might be thinking of something to stick onto the
windscreen itself - I can't see how 'bubbles' would be a problem anywhere
else. I don't think that would solve the problem I'm thinking of, and a
tinted laminate might be illegal on a windscreen (or front side-windows) if
it cuts out too much light.
