MANUAL AIR CONDITIONING
1 Adjusting the air temperature.
2 Adjusting the ventilation speed.
3 Air conditioning.
4 Distribution of air in the passenger compartment.
5 De-icing/demisting of the rear screen and, depending on the vehicle, the door mirrors.
6 Air recirculation.
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 3.
Activation is not possible if control 2 is set to OFF.
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 4 to choose the distribution option.
W The air flow is directed to the windscreen and the front side window demisting vents.
i 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 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.
Adjusting the ventilation speed
Move control 2. The further the control is positioned to the right, the greater the amount of air blown into the passenger compartment. If you want to shut off the flow of air, set control 2 to OFF.
The system is deactivated: the ventilation speed is zero (vehicle stationary). You can, however, still feel a slight flow of air when the vehicle is moving.
Turn controls 1, 2 and 4 to positions W:
- air from the outside;
- maximum temperature;
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.
Rear screen de-icing/demisting
With the engine running, press button 5. 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 5 again.
Demisting automatically stops.
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.
Positions W and i prevent air recirculation mode to avoid any risk of condensation forming on the windscreen and triggers the air conditioning function. The integrated light in button 3 does not come on.
