Air distribution - recirculation

Select recirculation to shut out bad air, exhaust gases etc. from the passenger compartment, i.e. no outside air is taken into the car when this function is activated.
P4-1246 Button Recirculation

When recirculation is engaged the orange lamp in the button illuminates.


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


With the timer function activated the system will exit manually activated recirculation mode according to a time that depends on the outside temperature. This reduces the risk of ice, misting and bad air.

It is possible to activate/deactivate the function in the menu system MY CAR. For a description of the menu system, see MY CAR.


When max. defroster is selected, recirculation is always deactivated.
