The controls

1 - Air recirculation control.

2 - Adjusting the air temperature.

3 - Adjusting the ventilation speed.

4 - Adjusting the distribution of air in the passenger compartment.

5 - Heated rear screen and heated door mirror de-icing/demisting control and indicator light.

6 - Air conditioning control and operating indicator light (depending on vehicle).

Information and advice for use:

Refer to information on “Air conditioning: information and advice on use”.

Switching air conditioning on or off

The air conditioning is switched on (indicator light illuminated) or off (indicator light extinguished) using button 6.

The air conditioning or air recirculation can be used to lower the temperature inside the passenger compartment.

Air recirculation can be used to reach the desired temperature more quickly.

The air conditioning can be used independently of the temperature controls. It can be used to demist more quickly in cold weather. Refer to the paragraph on “Fast Demisting” on the next page.

The air conditioning does not operate when the exterior temperature is low.

Adjusting the air temperature

Turn control 2 to obtain the desired temperature. The further towards the red the slide is, the higher the temperature will be.

Distribution of air in the passenger compartment

Turn control 4 so that the pointer is positioned opposite the marked positions.

W The air flow is directed to the windscreen demisting vents and the side windows. This position prevents the formation of condensation.

i The air flow is directed to the demisting vents of the windscreen and side windows, and towards the passenger footwells.

This is the recommended position for the best temperature in cold weather.

ó The air flow is directed mainly towards the footwells.

G The air flow is directed to all air vents and the footwells.

J The air flow is directed mainly to the dashboard vents.

The last position is the recommended setting to attain the best comfort level in hot weather.

Rapid demisting

Set the following controls to:

- 2 control: maximum temperature;

- 3 control: maximum fan speed;

- 4 control: air distribution to W 9;

- 1 control: external air W 8.

To activate air conditioning: press the 6 button.

Adjusting the ventilation speed

Normal use

Turn control 3 to one of the four positions BCD or E to start the ventilation system and adjust the power.

Select position B to set the ventilation to the minimum or select position E to set the ventilation to the maximum.

Position 0

In this position (mark A):

- the air conditioning stops automatically even if button 6 is activated (the indicator light remains lit);

- the air ventilation speed in the passenger compartment is zero;

- there is, however, a slight flow of air when the vehicle is moving.

This position should not normally be used.

Air recirculation (isolation of the passenger compartment)

Turn control 1 towards the air recirculation symbol K.

Air will be taken from the passenger compartment and recirculated, without any air being taken from outside the vehicle.

Air recirculation is for:

- to isolate the passenger compartment from external air (driving in polluted areas, unpleasant odours etc.);

- to reach the desired temperature in the passenger compartment more quickly.

Prolonged use of this position can lead to condensation forming on the side windows and windscreen and problems due to the use of non-renewed air in the passenger compartment.

We therefore advise you to return to normal mode (outside air) as soon as the air recirculation function is no longer required, by turning control 1 again.
