Climatic installation


Governing bodies:
And – the Handle of the choice of temperature.
In – the Switch of steps of operation of the fan.
With – the Handle of distribution of air supply on nozzles.
D – Key of inclusion/switching off of climatic installation.
Е – Recirculation mode key.

Climatic installation represents the combined cooling system and heating which provides the greatest possible comfort at all seasons of the year.

The refrigeration unit functions only at the working engine at a temperature of external air above about +5 °C and at turning on of the fan on one of four steps of the switch B.

At the switched-on refrigeration unit in salon not only the air temperature, but also its humidity Thanks to it goes down at high humidity of external air as well in cold season the health of the driver and passengers improves, and fogging of glasses is prevented.

The handle A – the choice of temperature

Turn clockwise – increase in heating.

Turn counterclockwise – heating reduction.

At the included climatic installation at turn of the handle installation refrigerating capacity counterclockwise increases.

The switch B – the fan

Air supply is regulated in four steps. At a low speed of the movement it is necessary to include the lower step of operation of the fan always.

On cars with the dust filter at any position of the switch In air it is cleared of dust, a soot of pollen of plants, etc.

The handle C – distribution of air supply on nozzles

Back nozzles of air supply in a zone of legs are regulated together with nozzles 5.

Key D – inclusion and switching off of climatic installation

Installation can be included by pressing of a key. In the pressed key the AS symbol shines.

Switching off of installation is made by repeated pressing of the drowned key. The AS symbol ceases to shine.

Key E – air recirculation

Pressing of a key the air recirculation mode joins. At inclusion the control lamp in a key begins to shine.

For switching off of recirculation of air it is necessary to press the drowned button once again. The control lamp ceases to shine.

Work of installation in the mode of recirculation prevents hit in salon of unpleasant smells, for example, at journey of the tunnel or at the movement in a stopper.

If it is necessary to reduce quickly air temperature in salon, it is possible to set the recirculation mode. At such mode air is sucked in from salon, then cooled.


The mode of recirculation of air has to, however to be included only for a short time as at this mode fresh air does not come to salon, and at the switched-off climatic installation of glass can mist over.

During the work of climatic installation in the mode of recirculation it is not necessary to smoke in interior of the car as the particles which are contained in tobacco smoke settle in the evaporator of climatic installation. It leads to the fact that the air given to salon will have for a long time a smell of tobacco smoke of which it will be possible to get rid with great difficulty, having spent the essential sum of money for replacement of the evaporator.

For safety reasons the mode of recirculation is impossible when the handle C is in situation.

Besides, the mode of recirculation is turned off when you turn the handle C from the "Air Stream in a Zone of Legs" position in the "Cleaning of Windshield Ice" position against the stop.

If the handle C is in an adjusting zone between the situation shown in the drawing and situation "Cleaning of Windshield Ice" the mode of recirculation is impossible.

The D and E keys can be also pressed in common.
