Comfort

Ventilation

Air circulation

The climatic comfort is reached due to uniformity of distribution of air streams on the volume of salon.


Scheme of distribution of air streams

Nothing has to prevent free intake of air. You watch lattices of the air inlet located in the windshield basis, regularly clear it of dry leaves and other foreign objects, delete snow traffic jams in the winter. Try to avoid hit of water in air inlets when washing the car.

Do not block pass under front seats to provide easy access of air in foot wells of a back part of salon.

Deflectors of lobbies snuffled ventilating air ducts are supplied with the rychazhka allowing to regulate receipt intensity of air supply and the direction of its stream (up-down, to the right-to the left).

Management of functioning of systems of heating/ventilation of salon

Control lever distribution of an air stream

The choice of the direction of distribution of an air stream on interior of the car is carried out by means of the lever (1) on the control panel of functioning of systems of heating/ventilation. The control panel is located in a middle part of the dashboard directly over the place of its joint with the central console (see the illustration Scheme of Distribution of Air Streams ).


Control panel of functioning of systems of heating/ventilation of salon

1 — the Control lever distribution of an air stream
2 — the Lever of the choice of the scheme of air circulation

3 — the Control lever temperature of the air given to salon
4 — the Lever of the choice of the high-speed mode of the fan

When translating a control lever by distribution of air in the given vent provision of an air stream it is carried out at the level of the person.
Transfer of the lever to this situation the air stream goes to foot wells.
In this situation the stream is evenly distributed between nozzles of foot wells and an obduva of a windshield.
This position of the lever has to be chosen for an intensive obduv of a windshield.

Lever of the choice of the scheme of air circulation

By means of the lever (2) on the control panel the choice of one of two possible schemes of air circulation is carried out: opened or closed (see the illustration Control Panel of Functioning of Systems of Heating/ventilation of Salon ).

When the lever is transferred to extreme right situation, the open scheme of circulation when fresh external air constantly continues to come to salon is carried out. This scheme is the most productive at fight against an otpotevaniye of glasses.

Transfer of the lever to extreme left situation carries out switching of system in the mode of the closed recirculation of air in salon. This scheme is used at journey through strongly dusty or gas-polluted areas, and also to prevent hit in salon badly of the smelling air. Remember that long use of the mode of the closed recirculation leads to developments of stagnation, and also is fraught with an otpotevaniye of glasses.

Air temperature regulator

By means of the lever (3) (see the illustration Control Panel of Functioning of Systems of Heating/ventilation of Salon ) control of temperature of the air forced in salon is exercised.

The lever (4) (see in the same place) serves for inclusion/switching off of the fan and the choice of the high-speed mode of its functioning.

Models with the air conditioner

The air conditioning system (K/V) allowing to support the most comfortable climatic conditions in interior of the car regardless of temperature and humidity of air is included in the package of some models. In a refrigerator path of system environmentally friendly coolant is used. The cooling system of air operates only at the working engine.

For inclusion To/in press the switch located on the dashboard near the switch of the alarm system. The button of the switch is equipped with the green control lamp confirming activation of system.

Remember that maximum efficiency of functioning of the conditioner can be reached only at the closed windows.

At an excessive warming up of salon during the long parking in the open sun before turning on the conditioner air salon by opening of windows (do not forget then them to close).

For increase in efficiency of functioning of air conditioning system and speed of cooling of salon in hot weather use the mode of the closed air recirculation for what move a control lever (E) to extreme left situation.


Control panel of functioning of systems of heating/ventilation and air conditioning

Install the lever of the choice of the high-speed mode of the fan (A) in average situation. In order to avoid a stagnation of the closed air, cancel the recirculation mode at once as soon as the salon enough is cooled.

In order to avoid destruction of material of sealing cuffs of components of a cooling path the conditioner has to be used regularly, turning on for a short time at least once in a month.

Use To/in in winter season allows to cope as fast as possible with an otpotevaniye of glasses in salon.

At the salon which is switched off To/in air temperature lower than the ambient temperature cannot be supported.

The choice of temperature of the air given to salon is carried out by means of the lever (V) (see the illustration Control Panel of Functioning of Systems of Heating/ventilation and Air Conditioning ) on the control panel (in combination with inclusion/switching off To/in). To optimum climatic conditions there corresponds position of the lever 22. At the request of the operator air can be warmed in addition up, or is cooled.

In extreme provisions of the lever (blue and red sites of a scale) the automatic mode of adjustment of speed of rotation of the fan (see below) does not work.

The choice of the high-speed mode of functioning of the fan is carried out by means of the lever (A) (see in the same place). Position of AUTO corresponds to the choice of the mode of automatic adjustment of speed of forcing of an air stream. Besides the automatic mode the choice of the high-speed mode can be carried out by movement of the lever at the discretion of the operator in one of five discrete provisions (on increasing from left to right).

The position of the lever marked with the image of a krylchatka corresponds to shutdown of the fan.

Fight against an otpotevaniye of glasses

When translating a control lever distribution of an air stream (D) (see the illustration Control Panel of Functioning of Systems of Heating/ventilation and Air Conditioning ) in the situation corresponding to a glass obduv, the system of automatic adjustment carries out selection of the optimum temperature and high-speed conditions of an obduv wind and forward side glasses, depending on temperature of external air.

For providing the most comfortable conditions in salon transfer the lever D to the position second on the right.

The choice of temperature condition is carried out by means of the lever B. Extreme left position of the lever answers the minimum temperature of the given air, extreme on the right - maximum.
