Sorry I won't be able to help you directly,  as its 7 years since I owned a Picasso  (and  still lurking after all this time!) but it would help others if you said which belt has come off...presumably the auxiliary drive belt (which turns the alternator and aircon compressor etc),  or the belt to the power steering pump,  and NOT the cam belt (or you'd be replacing more than the belt!).... also whether petrol or diesel etc.

Most bearing factors sell belts.  They have a measuring block which will indicate the size.
