This is on ebay but is for a Berlingo....very similar if not the same as the Pic.
There is a wheel, jack and brace for sale on ebay for a Xantia

The wheel brace is the tool for this. The wheel brace should live in the floor cubby hole behind the driver's seat and be clipped to the lid.

One end is a socket for the wheel nuts the other is a "screw driver" with a curved end to undo the cradle screw insid ethe boot.

So why didn't the dealer put on the wheel and tools, or was it a private deal.

if the former GO back as under law surely the vehicle is NOT complete.

How easy do you want it? :huh: It can't get lost in the cubby; or buried under luggage, or nicked when the spare gets stolen.

Did you know that the spare gets "removed" on Pics? Lots of info on how to prevent this on the forum

What does the toool look like to undo the funny shaped nut in the boot to realease the spare wheel

Why can they not use a nut the same size as the wheel brace?

So you don't over-tighten it, maybe?
