Climate control

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 vehicle

occupants to feel drowsy.

In warm and very humid ambient air

conditions, the windscreen might mist

up from outside when cold air is

directed towards it. If windscreen

mists up from outside, activate

windscreen wiper and avoid the use

of air distribution settings J and V.

Maximum cooling

Briefly open the windows so that hot

air can disperse quickly.

● Cooling A/C on.
