Manual climate system functions
The blower speed can be increased or decreased by turning the knob. If the knob is
turned counterclockwise and the indicator light in the display goes out, the blower and the air
conditioning are switched off. The display shows the blower symbol and OFF.
This function can be used to shut out exhaust fumes, smoke, etc from the passenger
compartment. The air in the passenger compartment is then recirculated, i.e. no air from outside the car
is taken into the car when this function is activated. Recirculation (together with the air conditioning
system) cools the passenger compartment more quickly in very warm weather. If the air in the car
recirculates for too long, there is a risk of condensation forming on the insides of the windows,
especially in winter.
The timer function minimizes the risk of misting, or stale air when the recirculation function is selected.

you select Defroster (3).

Air flows to the windows at high blower speed.
The LED in the defroster button lights up when this function is activated. The air conditioning system
is controlled to provide maximum air dehumidification.
