    Hello, we've got a Peugeot/ Autosleeper X250 and around the rear edge of the front wheel arch there are 4 small holes approx 6mm square, these holes should have small white button like plugs inserted to tidy things up, the problem is that some are missing.
    I've tried 2 different Peugeot and a Fiat dealer who couldn't find the items on their parts system, Autosleeper have never supplied them and say they are a Peugeot item.
    Ours is a 2013 and the same grommets are fitted to a friends 2011 Swift group Autocruise that he has owned since new.

    The question is has anyone else been able to source these bits and possibly a part number ?

    Thanks for looking, Chris

    Have you tried looking on the Citroen service portal - if you go to http://service.citroen.com/pages/index.jsp you can register and logon - its free to view drawings and parts. Site is in french - change to english (bottom right) and then select register.
    When you log on you can select a vehicle - a Citroen Relay III is the same as the Citroen X250 and then select a chasis type.

    there are plans and parts lists for most things and also a list of genetic parts including hole covers/plugs etc

    I had same problem with the missing caps. I just got some 12mm diameter white plastic screw caps and stuck them on with a bit of sikaflex, when you push it over the hole, smear the excess sikaflex on the inside of the arch to cover over the inside edge of the square hole, when it dries they are then secure.
    You should be able to pick some up at any DIY store or at the link below.

    See the alternative above, looks just the same as original when done.

    I bought some from the Range, they are called Self-Cover Buttons and are 15mm diameter, colour is white.
    6 on a card for about 99p and have a retaining piece on the rear. Find them in the sewing section, a perfect fit.

    Thanks for the info regarding the Citroen site, I tried to register as a customer or a motor trade person but it wouldn't accept my email address, can't understand why.
    It's just a minor irritation that all current Sevel X250 White vans have these fitted as can be seen on brand new vehicles but the main dealers can't find a part number and the motorhome dealers aren't interested !
    Looks like screw caps are the easy fix and I've got plenty of those already.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, what a great forum

    According to the local Fiat dealer they are available but @£3.52 each "Ouch"

    White screw caps it is then.

    The original factory fitted ones are one piece with a raised circular step on the reverse side, just clips into the square hole around the lip of the wheel arch
