MANUAL AIR CONDITIONING
1 Adjusting the air temperature.
2 “Clear View” function.
3 Passenger compartment air distribution adjustment.
4 Air-conditioning deactivation control.
5 Adjusting the fan speed until the system switches off.
6 Air recirculation.
7 De-icing/demisting of the rear screen and, depending on the vehicle, the door mirrors.
Heating or air-conditioning can only be used while the engine is running.
Switching air conditioning on or off
(depending on vehicle)
The air conditioning is switched on (indicator light on) or off (indicator light off) using button 4.
Activation is not possible if control 5 is set to OFF.
The air conditioning system is used for:
- lowering the temperature inside the passenger compartment;
- eliminating condensation more quickly.
Advice: to optimize vehicle range, deactivate the air conditioning when the outside temperature is comfortable.
Adjusting the ventilation speed
Turn the control 5 to one of the eight positions to start the ventilation system and adjust the power.
In this position:
- the air conditioning switches off automatically;
- the ventilation speed of air 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.
Some buttons have an operating tell-tale which indicates the operating status.
Adjusting the air temperature
Turn control 1 to obtain the desired temperature. The further towards the red the slide is, the higher the temperature will be.
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.
Adjusting the distribution of air in the passenger compartment
Press one of the buttons 3 to select the air distribution. The integrated warning light in the button comes on.
It is possible to combine two positions simultaneously - press both buttons 3.
Ø The air flow is distributed between demisting air vents of the front side-window and the windscreen demisting vents.
½ All the air flow is directed to the dashboard vents.
¿ The air flow is directed mainly towards the footwells.
Rear screen de-icing/demisting
Press the 7 button: the integrated indicator light comes on. This function enables rapid demisting or de-icing of the rear screen and de-icing of the door mirrors (on equipped vehicles).
To exit this function, press button 7 again. Demisting automatically stops.
In the event of freezing, manually de-ice the windscreen using a scraper rather than the de-icing/demisting function in order to reduce your energy consumption.
Clear View function
Press the 2 button: the integrated indicator light comes on.
This system quickly demists and de-ices the windscreen and the front side windows. It requires the automatic usage of the air-conditioning or the heating.
To exit this function, select one of the adjustments (distribution, ventilation speed, temperature, recycling) required.
Switching the air recirculation on
Press button 6: the integrated indicator light 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.
The demisting/de-icing will still take priority over the air recirculation.
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.
