The function is used to remove ice and misting from the windscreen, rear window and door mirrors.

One press of the respective button starts the heating. The light in the button indicates that the function is active. Switch off the heating as soon as the ice/misting is cleared in order not to load the battery unnecessarily. However, the function is switched off automatically after a certain time. Following which, rear window heating is switched on and off automatically as long as the outside temperature is lower than +7 °C.

Note

Rear window heating is not switched on and off automatically if the Eco function is activated, but then remains switched off, even in outside temperatures below +7 °C. For information about the Eco function, see Drive mode ECO.

See also Demisting and defrosting the windscreen.

The door mirrors and rear window are demisted/defrosted automatically if the car is started in an outside temperature lower than +7 °C. Automatic defrosting can be selected in the menu system MY CAR, see MY CAR.
