NOTE
- Models with air conditioner system:
When the “
position is” or “position is” position is selected, the air conditioner compressor automatically operates regardless of the position of the air conditioner button to defog the windshield more quickly. At the same time, the air inlet selection is automatically switched to the OFF position (outside air). However, the air conditioner indicator light does not illuminate at this time.

- When defrosting, defogging or heating, warm air is also emitted from the right and left air outlets. To stop warm airflow from these outlets, turn the corresponding thumb wheel down.
