Peugeot 2008 (2016 year). Instruction - part 5







In order for these systems to be fully effective, follow the operation and maintenance 
guidelines below:
F  To obtain an even air distribution, take care not to obstruct the exterior air intake grilles 

located at the base of the windscreen, the nozzles, the vents and the air outlets, as well 
as the air extractor located in the boot.

F  Do not cover the sunshine sensor, located on the dashboard; this is used for regulation 

of the air conditioning system.

F  Operate the air conditioning system for at least 5 to 10 minutes, once or twice a month 

to keep it in perfect working order.

F  Ensure that the passenger compartment filter is in good condition and have the filter 

elements replaced regularly.


We recommend the use of a combined passenger compartment filter. Thanks to its 
special active additive, it contributes to the purification of the air breathed by the 
occupants and the cleanliness of the passenger compartment (reduction of allergic 
symptoms, bad odours and greasy deposits).

F  To ensure correct operation of the air conditioning system, you are also advised to have 

it checked regularly as recommended in the warranty and maintenance record.

F  If the system does not produce cold air, switch it off and contact a PEUGEOT dealer or 

a qualified workshop.

When towing the maximum load on a steep gradient in high temperatures, switching off the 
air conditioning increases the available engine power and so improves the towing ability.

Recommendations for ventilation and air conditioning

If after an extended stop in sunshine, 
the interior temperature is very high, first 
ventilate the passenger compartment for 
a few moments.
Put the air flow control at a setting high 
enough to quickly change the air in the 
passenger compartment.
The air conditioning system does not 
contain chlorine and does not present 
any danger to the ozone layer.

The condensation created by the air 
conditioning results in a discharge 
of water under the vehicle which is 
perfectly normal.

Stop & Start

The heating and air conditioning systems only work when the engine is running.
To maintain a comfortable temperature in the passenger compartment, you can temporarily 
deactivate the Stop & Start system.
For more information on Stop & Start, refer to the corresponding section.

in winter, above 3 °C.

Switching on

F  Press the "A/C" button, the button's 

indicator lamp comes on.

Switching off

F  Press the "A/C" button again, the button's 

indicator lamp goes off.

Switching off may affect comfort levels 
(humidity, condensation).

The air conditioning is designed to 
operate effectively in all seasons, 
with the windows closed.

The air conditioning does not operate 
when the air flow adjustment control is 
in position "0".

To obtain cooled air more quickly, you can use 
recirculation of interior air for a few moments. 
Then return to fresh air intake.

the interior air: the indicator lamp 
is on.

Air intake / Air recirculation

Recirculation of the air in the vehicle isolates 
the passenger compartment from exterior 
odours and fumes.
Return to the intake of exterior air as soon as 
possible to avoid the risk of deterioration of air 
quality and misting.

Automatic programme

When the engine is cold, the air flow will 
only reach its optimum level gradually 
to prevent too great a distribution of 
cold air.
In cold weather, it favours the 
distribution of warm air to the 
windscreen, the side windows and the 
footwells only.

A setting around 21 enables you to obtain an 
optimum level of comfort. Depending on your 
requirements, a setting between 18 and 24 is usual.
In addition, it is recommended that you avoid a left/
right setting difference of more than 3.

On entering the vehicle, if the interior 
temperature is much colder or warmer 
than the comfort value, there is no need 
to alter the value displayed in order to 
obtain the required level of comfort. 
The system corrects the temperature 
difference automatically and as quickly 
as possible.

The connection of an electrical device 
not approved by PEUGEOT, such as a 
USB charger, may adversely affect the 
operation of vehicle electrical systems, 
causing faults such as poor telephone 
reception or interference with displays 
in the screens.





USB port / Jack auxiliary socket

When the USB port is used, the portable device 
charges automatically.
While charging, a message is displayed if the 
current drawn by the portable device exceeds 
the power rating of the vehicle's port.

For more information on the use of this 
system, refer to the "Audio equipment 
and telematics" section.

This connection box, consisting of an USB port 
and a JACK auxiliary socket is located on the 
centre console.
It allows the connection of portable device, 
such as a digital audio player of the iPod



or a USB memory stick.
It reads the audio files which are transmitted to 
your audio system and played via the vehicle's 
You can manage these files using the steering 
mounted controls or the audio system control 
panel and display them in the instrument panel 




To remove the mat on the driver's side:
F  move the seat as far back as possible,
F  unclip the fixings,
F  remove the mat.



To avoid any risk of jamming of the 

only use mats which are suited to 
the fixings already present in the 
vehicle; these fixings must be used,

never fit one mat on top of another.

The use of mats not approved by 
PEUGEOT may interfere with access to 
the pedals and hinder the operation of 
the cruise control / speed limiter.

To refit the mat on the driver's side:
F  position the mat correctly,
F  refit the fixings by pressing,
F  check that the mat is secured correctly.


Removable carpet protection.





Boot fittings

1.  High load retaining net (depending on 



(see following page for details)

2.  Luggage cover 

(see following page for details)

3.  Boot lamp
  Retaining strap
  Stowing rings (depending on version)
6.  Retaining net




High load retaining net

Hooked onto the upper fixings and onto the 
lower rings or the lugs, this permits use of the 
entire loading volume up to the roof:

behind the rear seats (row 2),

behind the front seats (row 1) when the rear 
seats are folded.

When positioning the net, check that 
the strap loops are visible from the 
boot; this will make slackening or 
tightening easier.

Never use the ISOFIX ring intended for 
fixing the upper strap of child seat to the 
Top Tether.

To use it in row 1:
F  open the covers of the upper fixings 1,
F  unroll the high load retaining net,
F  position one of the ends of the net's metal 

bar in the corresponding upper fixing 1
then do the same with the other end,

F  slacken the straps fully,
F  fix the snap hook of each of the straps on 

the corresponding lug 3, located under the 
bench seat cushion,

F  fold the rear seats,
F  tighten the straps without raising the 

bench seat,

F  check that the net is hooked and tightened 


To use it in row 2:
F  fold or remove the load space cover,
F  open the covers of the upper fixings 2,
F  unroll the high load retaining net,
F  position one of the ends of the net's metal 

bar in the corresponding upper fixing 2
then do the same with the other end,

F  attach the hook of each of the net's straps 

in the corresponding lower ring 4,

F  tighten the straps,
F  check that the net is hooked and tightened 






Rear parcel shelf

This consists of two sections which can be 
folded back on each other.
To store it, fold it on itself and place it at the 
bottom of the boot.

To gain access to the boot from the rear seats:
F  raise the front section of the rear parcel 

shelf using the grip A.




Warning triangle (stowing)

Before leaving your vehicle to set up 
and install the triangle, switch on the 
hazard warning lamps and put on your 
high visibility vest.

The dimensions of the triangle (once folded) or 
its storage box must be:

A: length = 438 mm,

B: height = 56 mm,

C: width = 38 mm.

Placing the triangle in the road

F  Place the triangle at a distance behind the 

vehicle, in line with the driving regulations 
in force in the country.

The location for stowing a folded triangle or its box is under the front seat or under the boot carpet (depending on version).

The triangle is available as an 
accessory, contact a PEUGEOT dealer 
or a qualified workshop.

To use the triangle, refer to the 
manufacturer's instructions.
