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:

Distribution of air in the passenger compartment

There are five air distribution options.

Turn control 4 to choose the distribution option.

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.

The air flow is directed mainly
towards the footwells.

The air flow is directed towards
the dashboard air vents, the front footwells and, depending on the vehicle, the second row footwells.

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:

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.

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.
