Activating and deactivating air recirculation

Air recirculation shuts out bad air, exhaust gases, etc. from outside the car by the climate control system reusing the air in the passenger compartment.

P5-1507–Climate–Button recirculation

The air recirculation button in the climate view.

Open the climate view in the centre display.

Press Recirc.

Air recirculation is activated/deactivated and the button illuminates/extinguishes.


If the air in the car is recirculated for too long then there is a risk of misting on the insides of the windows.


It is not possible to activate air recirculation when max defroster is activated.
