MANUAL AIR CONDITIONING, HEATING SYSTEM
A Adjusting the amount of air blown into the passenger compartment.
B Air recirculation operation (isolation of the passenger compartment)
C Adjusting the air temperature.
D Activating air conditioning (depending on the vehicle).
E Rear screen and/or door mirror de-icing/demisting.
F Air distribution.
Information and advice for use
Refer to information on “Air conditioning: information and advice on use”.
Distribution of air in the passenger compartment
Turn control F.
J All the air flow is directed to the dashboard vents.
This selection is not appropriate if all the air vents are closed.
G The air flow is directed to the dashboard vents and the footwells.
F The air flow is directed mainly towards the footwells.
i The air flow is distributed between all the air vents, the front side window demisting vents, the windscreen demisting vents and the footwells.
W The air flow is directed to the windscreen demisting/de-icing outlets and the side windows. This position prevents the formation of condensation. Use at the highest temperature.
V Rear screen and/or door mirror de-icing/demisting.
Press button E: the integrated indicator light comes on. This function demists the rear screen and/or the heated door mirrors quickly.
To exit this function, press the button again; the integrated indicator goes out. Demisting automatically stops by default.
Adjusting the air temperature
Turn control C.
Turning the control to the right increases the temperature.
Air recirculation operation (isolation of the passenger compartment)
Normal operation of the heating and ventilation system is obtained using air from outside.
Recirculation of air allows the external atmosphere to be isolated (driving in polluted areas, etc.).
Press button B to switch to isolation mode.
This function also allows the desired comfort level to be achieved as quickly as possible.
This starts or stops air recirculation. Operating tell-tale lights up when the function is operational. In this position the air is taken from inside the passenger compartment and is recycled without letting air in from outside.
Prolonged use of this position can lead to condensation forming on the side windows and windscreen and problems due to the use of nonrenewed 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 button B again.
Adjusting the amount of air blown into the passenger compartment
Turn control A from 0 to 4.
The passenger compartment is ventilated by blown air.
The blower determines how much air enters but vehicle speed also has some influence on this.
The further the control is positioned to the right, the greater the amount of air blown into the passenger compartment.
Switching air conditioning on or off
(depending on the vehicle)
The air conditioning is switched on (indicator light lit) or off (indicator light off) using button D.
The air conditioning system is used for:
- lowering the temperature inside the passenger compartment;
- eliminating condensation more quickly.
Note: the air conditioning does not operate if the exterior temperature is low or the ventilation speed is less than 1.
