Outside air

Keep the air intakes forward of thewindscreen free from obstruction (snow,leaves etc.) to allow the climate controlsystem to function effectively.

Recirculated air

CAUTION:

Prolonged use of recirculated air maycause the windows to mist up. If thewindows mist up, follow the settingsfor defrosting and demisting thewindscreen.

The air currently in the passengercompartment will be recirculated. Outsideair will not enter the vehicle.

Heating

Heating performance depends on thetemperature of the engine coolant.

Air conditioning

Note: The air conditioning operates onlywhen the temperature is above 4ºC(39ºF).

Note: If you use the air conditioning, thefuel consumption of your vehicle will behigher.

Air is directed through the evaporatorwhere it is cooled. Humidity is extractedfrom the air to help keep the windows freeof mist. The resulting condensation isdirected to the outside of the vehicle andit is therefore normal if you see a smallpool of water under your vehicle.
