Air Conditioning System (Manual)

General information

Fig. 23: Air-conditioning control panel

The air quantity, air distribution and temperature can be set manually on the manual air-conditioning system.

Cooling function
The cooling function cools and dries the air.


  1. The cooling function can switch off briefly to ensure sufficient engine cooling when the engine is operating under extreme load.
    It switches off automatically at temperatures below approx. 35 °F (2 °C) and cannot be switched on, even manually.
  2. The cooling function operates most effectively with the windows closed. If heat accumulates in the passenger compartment, briefly open the windows to ventilate the interior.
  3. Depending on the outside temperature and humidity, condensation may drip from under the vehicle. This is quite normal and is not a defect.
  4. If the battery voltage is too low, the fresh-air blower and cooling functions are initially restricted and then switched off.
