Indicators

The following indicators are displayed on the multimedia screen A:

8 Air temperature.

9 Active mode.

10 Fan speed.

11 Distribution of air in the passenger compartment.

Switching air conditioning on or off

The air conditioning is switched on (indicator light on) or off (indicator light off) using the control 3.

The air conditioning system is used for:

- lowering the temperature inside the passenger compartment;

- eliminating condensation more quickly.

Distribution of air in the passenger compartment

There are five air distribution options. Turn control 5 to choose the distribution option.

The air distribution is displayed on the multimedia screen.

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.

Adjusting the air temperature

Turn control 1 to obtain the desired temperature. The more bars are displayed on the multimedia screen, 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.

Rear screen de-icing/demisting

With the engine running, press the control 2. 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 the control 2 again.

Demisting automatically stops.

Clear View function

Press the control 1: the integrated indicator light in the button comes on.

This function quickly demists and de-ices the windscreen, the rear screen, the front side windows, and the exterior rear view mirrors (depending on the vehicle). The air conditioning and rear screen de-icing functions must be activated.

Switching the air recirculation on

Press the control 4: the integrated indicator light in the button comes on. Under these conditions, air is taken from the passenger compartment and is recirculated, with no air being taken from outside the vehicle. Air recirculation operates as follows:

- isolating the vehicle from the external atmosphere (driving in polluted areas, etc.);

- lowering the passenger compartment temperature as quickly as possible.

Varying the ventilation speed

You can adjust the fan speed by pressing the controls 6 or 7 to increase or reduce the fan speed.

The system is deactivated (OFF): the ventilation speed is zero (vehicle stationary). You can, however, still feel a slight flow of air when the vehicle is moving.

Stopping the system

To switch off the system, press the control 7 several times until the message “OFF” appears on the multimedia screen.

You may, however, feel a slight flow of air when the vehicle is moving.

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 control 4 again.
