Switching the system on/off
Turn the rotary switch for the air volume to 0.
The blower and air conditioner are completely
switched off and the air supply is cut off.
Set any air volume to switch on the air condi‐
tioning.
Cooling function
The car's interior can only be
cooled with the engine running.
The cooling function cools and
dehumidifies the incoming air
before reheating it as required,
according to the temperature setting.
The cooling function helps to prevent conden‐
sation on the windows or to remove it quickly.
Depending on the weather, the windshield may
fog up briefly when the engine is started.
To cool the air faster and more intensively
when external temperatures are high, switch
on the recirculated air mode.
Recirculated air mode
If the air outside the car has an
unpleasant odor or contains pol‐
lutants, shut off the supply to the
interior of the car temporarily.
The system then recirculates the
air currently within the vehicle.
Should the windows fog up in the recirculated-
air mode, press the AUTO button or switch off
the recirculated-air mode and increase the air
volume if necessary. Make sure that air can
flow to the windshield.
Recirculated air mode is automatically deacti‐
vated at low external temperatures.
With constant recirculated-air mode, the air
quality in the car's interior deteriorates and the
fogging of the windows increases.
Temperature
Turn upward, red, to raise the
temperature.
Turn downward, blue, to lower
the temperature.
Rear window defroster
The rear window defroster
switches off automatically after a
certain period of time.
The rear window defroster
power may be lowered or even
switched off entirely to save on battery power.
Vent settings
Direct the flow of air to the win‐
dows
, to the upper body
area , or to the footwell .
Intermediate positions are possi‐
ble.
Windshield heating
The windshield heating switches
off automatically after some
time.
The windshield heating may be
reduced or even switched off en‐
tirely to save on battery power.
Defrosting and defogging windows
1.
Set the maximum air volume.
2. Air distribution in position .
By switching on the cooling function, the
windows are defogged more rapidly.
3. Set the highest temperature, red.
4. Deactivate recirculated air mode.

sary.
6. Switch on the rear window defroster if nec‐
essary.
