Switching air conditioning on or off
The air conditioning is switched on (indicator light on) or off (indicator light off) using the button 7.
The air conditioning system is used for:
- lowering the temperature inside the passenger compartment;
- eliminating condensation more quickly.
Clear View function
Press button 3 - the integrated indicator light comes on.
This function quickly demists and de-ices the windscreen, the rear screen, the front side windows, and the door mirrors (depending on the vehicle). The air conditioning and rear screen de-icing functions must be activated.
Press button 6 to stop the heated rear screen operating, and the integrated indicator goes out.
To exit this function, press button 3 again.
Distribution of air in the passenger compartment
There are five air distribution options. Turn control 8 to choose the distribution option.
The air distribution is displayed on the indicator D.
õ The air flow is directed to the windscreen and the front side window demisting vents.
÷ The air flow is distributed between all the air vents, the front side window demisting vents, the windscreen demisting vents and the footwells.
ó The air flow is directed mainly towards the footwells.
G The air flow is directed towards the dashboard air vents, the front footwells and, depending on the vehicle, the second row footwells.
J All the air flow is directed to the dashboard vents.
Switching the air recirculation on
Press the button 2: the warning light B comes on. In these conditions, air is taken from the passenger compartment and is recycled, with no air being taken from outside the vehicle.
Air recirculation is for:
- isolating the vehicle from the external atmosphere (driving in polluted areas, etc.);
- lowering the passenger compartment temperature as quickly as possible.
Prolonged use of air recirculation can lead to condensation forming on the side windows and windscreen, and discomfort due to the use of non-renewed air in the passenger compartment. We therefore advise you to return to normal mode (external air) as soon as the air recirculation function is no longer required, by pressing the button 6 again.
Varying the ventilation speed
You can adjust the fan speed by pressing the buttons 4 to increase or reduce the fan speed.
The fan speed is displayed on the indicator C.
The system is stopped (OFF): the ventilation speed is zero (vehicle stationary). You can, however, still feel a slight flow of air when the vehicle is moving.
Adjusting the air temperature
Turn the control 1 to obtain the desired temperature. The more bars displayed A, the higher the temperature.
When the air conditioning system is used for long periods, it may begin to feel cold. To increase the temperature, turn control 1 to the right.
The air temperature is displayed on the indicator A.
Rear screen de-icing/demisting
With the engine running, press button 6. The operating tell-tale comes on.
This function permits rapid demisting/de-icing of the rear screen and de-icing of the door mirrors (on equipped vehicles).
To exit this function, press button 6 again.
Demisting automatically stops.
Stopping the system
To stop the system, press the button 5 OFF (the integrated warning light comes on).
The de-icing function cannot be used with the air recirculation mode to avoid any risk of condensation forming on the windscreen and triggers the air conditioning to come on. The integrated light in button 7 does not come on.
