the button. Cooling is only functional

when the engine is running and

climate control fan is switched on.
Press A/C again to switch off cooling.
The air conditioning system cools and

dehumidifies (dries) as soon as the

outside temperature is slightly above

the freezing point. Therefore

condensation may form and drip from

under the vehicle.
If no cooling or drying is required,

switch off the cooling system for fuel

saving reasons.

Activated cooling may inhibit

Autostops. Stop-start system 3 138.

cooling the interior or in blocking

outside odours or exhaust.
Press 4 again to deactivate air

recirculation mode.

9 Warning

The exchange of fresh air is

reduced in air recirculation mode.

In operation without cooling, the

air humidity increases, so the

windows may mist up from inside.

The quality of the passenger

compartment air deteriorates,

which may cause the occupants to

feel drowsy.

In warm and very humid ambient air

conditions, the windscreen may mist

up from outside when cold air is

directed towards it. If windscreen

mists up from outside, activate

windscreen wiper and deactivate l.

Maximum cooling

Briefly open the windows so that hot

air can disperse quickly.

● Switch on air conditioning A/C.

Fixed air vents

Additional air vents are located

beneath the windscreen and door

windows and in the foot wells.

Maintenance

Air intake

The air intake in front of the

windscreen in the engine

compartment must be kept clear to

allow air intake. Remove any leaves,

dirt or snow.

Cabin air filter

Change filter regulary for maximum

effect.
More frequent passenger

compartment air filter replacement

may be needed, if you drive in areas

with heavy traffic, poor air quality,

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Climate control

areas with high dust levels or which

are sensitive to environmental

allergens.
Passenger compartment air filter

replacement may also be needed if

there is reduced air flow, windows

fogging up, or odors.
Your dealer can help to determine

when it is the right time to replace the

filter.

Air conditioning regular

operation

In order to ensure continuously

efficient performance, cooling must

be operated for a few minutes once a

month, irrespective of the weather

and time of year. Operation with

cooling is not possible when the

outside temperature is too low.

Service

For optimal cooling performance, it is

recommended to annually check the

climate control system, starting

three years after initial vehicle

registration, including:

● functionality and pressure test
● heating functionality
● leakage check
● check of drive belts
● cleaning of condenser and

evaporator drainage

● performance check
● cabin air filter check

Driving hints

Control of the vehicle

Never coast with engine not

running

Many systems will not function in this

situation (e.g. brake servo unit, power

steering). Driving in this manner is a

danger to yourself and others.
All systems function during an

Autostop.
Stop-start system 3 138.

Idle boost

If charging of the vehicle battery is

required due to battery condition, the

power output of the generator must

be increased. This will be achieved by

an idle boost which may be audible.
A message appears in the Driver

Information Centre.

Pedals

To ensure the pedal travel is

uninhibited, there must be no mats in

the area of the pedals.

Use only floor mats, which fit properly

and are fixed by the retainers on the

driver side.

Steering

If power steering assist is lost

because the engine stops or due to a

system malfunction, the vehicle can

be steered but may require increased

effort.

Starting and operating

New vehicle running-in

Do not brake unnecessarily hard for

the first few journeys.
During the first drive, smoke may

occur because of wax and oil

evaporating off the exhaust system.

Park the vehicle in the open for a

while after the first drive and avoid

inhaling the fumes.
During the running-in period, fuel and

engine oil consumption may be

higher.
Additionally, the cleaning process of

the diesel particle filter may take

place more often.
Diesel particle filter 3 141.
Autostop may be inhibited to allow

charging of the vehicle battery.
