Air recirculation is for:

–  isolating the vehicle from the exter-

nal atmosphere (driving in polluted 

areas, etc.);

– lowering the passenger compart-

ment temperature as quickly as pos-

sible.

Switching the air 

recirculation on

Press the button 2: the warning light B 

comes on. In these conditions, air is 

taken from the passenger compartment 

and is recycled, with no air being taken 

from outside the vehicle.

MANUAL AIR CONDITIONING 

(2/3)

Prolonged use of air recirculation can lead to condensation forming on the side 

windows and windscreen, and discomfort due to the use of non-renewed air in 

the passenger compartment. We therefore advise you to return to normal mode 

(external air) as soon as the air recirculation function is no longer required, by 

pressing the button 6 again.

Distribution of air in the 

passenger compartment

There are five air distribution options. 

Turn control 8 to choose the distribution 

option.
The air distribution is displayed on the 

indicator D.

The air flow is directed to the 

windscreen and the front side 

window demisting vents.

÷

The air flow is distributed be-

tween all the air vents, the 

front side window demisting vents, the 

windscreen demisting vents and the 

footwells.

ó

The air flow is directed mainly 

towards the footwells.

G

The air flow is directed towards 

the dashboard air vents, the 

front footwells and, depending on the 

vehicle, the second row footwells.

lation speed is zero (vehicle stationary). 

You can, however, still feel a slight flow 

of air when the vehicle is moving.

MANUAL AIR CONDITIONING 

(3/3)

Adjusting the air temperature

Turn the control 1 to obtain the de-

sired temperature. The more bars dis-

played A, the higher the temperature.

When the air conditioning system is 

used for long periods, it may begin to 

feel cold. To increase the temperature, 

turn control 1 to the right.

The air temperature is displayed on the 

indicator A.

The de-icing function cannot be 

used with the air recirculation mode 

to avoid any risk of condensation 

forming on the windscreen and trig-

gers the air conditioning to come on. 

The integrated light in button 7 does 

not come on.

AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL 

(1/6)

Automatic mode

The automatic climate control system 

guarantees comfort in the passen-

ger compartment and good visibility 

(except in the event of extreme condi-

tions), while optimising consumption. 

The system controls the ventilation 

speed, air distribution, air recirculation, 

and starting and stopping the air condi-

tioning and air temperature.

AUTO: allows the selected com-

fort level to be best attained, depend-

ing on the exterior conditions. Press 

button 7. The integrated indicator light 

on button 7 comes on.

Varying the ventilation speed

In automatic mode, the system uses 

the most suitable amount of air to reach 

and maintain the desired comfort level.

You can still adjust the fan speed by 

pressing the buttons 6 to increase or 

reduce the fan speed.

In this case, the integrated indicator 

light on button 7 goes out and the ven-

tilation speed selected is displayed on 

the indicator C.

AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL 

(2/6)

Temperature adjustment

There are two types of settings:
– uniform passenger compartment 

setting;

–  adjustment in DUAL function to inde-

pendently adjust the left and/or right-

hand side of the passenger compart-

ment.

Uniform passenger compartment 

setting
Use control 2.

The displayed temperature values 

show a comfort level.

When starting the engine, increas-

ing or decreasing the value dis-

played will not allow the com-

fort level to be reached any more 

quickly. The system will always op-

timise the temperature increase or 

decrease (the ventilation system 

does not start instantly at maximum 

speed: it gradually increases). This 

may take several minutes.

Generally speaking, unless there is 

a particular reason not to, the dash-

board air vents should remain open.

DUAL function setting
Press button 12 to activate.
Use the control 2 to adjust the left side 

and control 10 for the right side.

Manual use
Pressing the button 9 allows air recir-

culation to be forced. In this case, the 

integrated warning light comes on and 

the indicator D goes out.
Prolonged use of this position may lead 

to odours, caused by non-renewal of 

air, and the formation of condensation 

on the windows.
We therefore advise you to return to au-

tomatic mode as soon as air recircula-

tion is no longer needed, by pressing 

button 9.

Stopping the system

To stop the system, press the button 1 

OFF (the integrated warning light 

comes on) or, depending on the ve-

hicle, reduce the fan speed down to 

a minimum by pressing the button 6 

marked by OFF as many times as is 

necessary.
To start, press the switch 7.

Recycling

This function is managed automati-

cally (operation is confirmed by warn-

ing light D), but you can also activate 

it manually.

Note:

–  during recirculation, air is taken from 

the passenger compartment and 

is recycled, with no air being taken 

from outside the vehicle;

–  air recirculation allows the external 

atmosphere to be cut off (when driv-

ing in polluted areas, etc.);

– lowering the passenger compart-

ment temperature as quickly as pos-

sible.

AIR CONDITIONING: information and operating instructions 

(1/2)

Do not add anything to the 

vehicle’s ventilation circuit 

(for example, to remove 

bad odours).

There is a risk of damage or of 

fire.

Do not open the refriger-

ant fluid circuit. The fluid 

may damage eyes or skin.

Fuel consumption

You will normally notice an increase in 

fuel consumption (especially in town) 

when the air conditioning is operating.
For vehicles fitted with air conditioning 

with no automatic mode, switch off the 

system when it is not required.

Advice for reducing consumption 

and helping to preserve the environ-

ment

Drive with the air vents open and the 

windows closed.

If the vehicle has been parked in the 

sun, open the doors for a few moments 

to let the hot air escape before starting 

the engine.

Maintenance

Refer to the Maintenance Document 

for your vehicle for the inspection fre-

quency.

Operating faults

As a general rule, contact your ap-

proved dealer in the event of an oper-

ating fault.
–  Reduction in de-icing, demisting 

or air conditioning performance.

This may be caused by the passen-

ger compartment filter cartridge be-

coming clogged.

–  No cold air is being produced.

Check that the controls are set cor-

rectly and that the fuses are sound. 

Otherwise, switch off the system.

Presence of water under the 

vehicle

After prolonged use of the air condi-

tioning system, it is normal for water 

to be present under the vehicle. This is 

caused by condensation.

Advice on use

In some situations (air conditioning off, 

air recirculation activated, ventilation 

speed at zero or low etc.), you may 

notice that condensation starts to form 

on the windows and windscreen.
If there is condensation, use the “Clear 

View” function to remove it, then use 

the air conditioning in automatic mode 

to stop it forming again.

Vehicles equipped with ECO 

mode: once activated, ECO mode 

may reduce the performance of the 

air conditioning. Please refer to the 

information on “Driving advice, Eco-

driving” in Section 2.

Use the air conditioning system reg-

ularly, even in cold weather, running 

it at least once a month for approxi-

mately 5 minutes.

3.14

The refrigerant circuit may contain 

fluorinated greenhouse gases.
Depending on the vehicle, you will find 

the following information on label A af-

fixed inside the engine compartment.
The presence and location of the infor-

mation on label A depends on the ve-

hicle.
