WARNING

Very hot or very cold air can flow from the air vents. This could result in burns or frostbite in the immediate vicinity of the air vents. There is a risk of injury.

Make sure that all vehicle occupants always maintain a sufficient distance to the air outlets. If necessary, redirect the airflow to another area of the vehicle interior.

The centre and side air vents are adjustable.

For virtually draught-free ventilation, adjust the sliders of the centre air vents to the centre position.

In order to ensure the direct flow of fresh air through the air vents into the vehicle interior, please observe the following notes:

  • keep the air inlet between the windscreen and the bonnet free of blockages, such as ice, snow or leaves.

  • never cover the vents or the ventilation grilles in the vehicle interior.
