Hints

Sufficient ventilation

When remaining in the vehicle for an extended period of time, ensure sufficient external ventilation. Do not continuously use recirculated- air mode; otherwise the air quality in the interior continuously deteriorates and window condensation increases.

Climate control functions in detail

Manual air distribution Press buttons repeatedly to select a program:

Windows.

Upper body region.

Footwell.

You may combine these programs as needed.

Air flow, manual

Turn the ring to set the desired air volume.

The higher the rate, the more effective the heating or cooling will be.

The air flow of the automatic climate control may be reduced automatically to save battery power.

AUTO program

Press button.

Air flow, air distribution and temperature are controlled automatically.

Depending on the selected temperature and outside influences, the air is directed to the windshield, side windows, upper body, and into the footwell.

The cooling function, is switched on automatically with the AUTO program.

Recirculated-air mode You may respond to unpleasant odors or pollutants in the immediate environment by temporarily suspending the supply of outside air. The system then recirculates the air currently within the vehicle.

Press button repeatedly to select an operating mode:

  • LED off: outside air flows in continuously.
  • LED on, recirculated-air mode: the supply of outside air into the vehicle is permanently blocked.

Recirculated air mode switches off automatically at low external temperatures after a certain amount of time in order to avoid window fogging.

If the windows fog over, switch off recirculated- air mode and increase the air flow, if needed.

Sufficient ventilation

When remaining in the vehicle for an extended period of time, ensure sufficient external ventilation. Do not continuously use recirculated-air mode; otherwise the air quality in the interior continuously deteriorates and window condensation increases.

Temperature

Turn the ring to set the desired temperature.

The automatic climate control reaches this temperature as quickly as possible, if needed by increasing the cooling or heating output, and then keeps it constant.

Do not rapidly switch between different temperature settings. Otherwise, the automatic climate control will not have sufficient time to adjust the set temperature.

Defrosts windows and removes condensation

Press button.

Ice and condensation are quickly removed from the windshield and the front side windows.

Adjust air flow with the program active.

If the windows are fogged over, you can also switch on the cooling function to dehumidify the air.

Cooling function The car's interior can only be cooled with the engine running.

Press button.

The air will be cooled and dehumidified and, depending on the temperature setting, warmed again.

Depending on the weather, the windshield and side windows may fog up briefly when the engine is started.

The cooling function is switched on automatically with the AUTO program.

When using the automatic climate control, condensation water, develops that exits underneath the vehicle.

Rear window defroster

Press button.

The rear window defroster switches off automatically after a certain period of time.

Switching the system on/off

Switch off Turn the rotary switch for the air volume, to 0. The blower and automatic climate control are turned off entirely.

Switching on Set any air volume.

The AUTO program can also be switched on directly via the AUTO button.

Microfilter The microfilter removes dust and pollen from the incoming air.

This filter should be replaced during scheduled maintenance, of your vehicle.
