Air supply nozzles

GENERAL INFORMATION


Through all nozzles air moves in the salon which is warmed up or is not warmed up (depending on position of the handle A).

Distribution of air supply is determined by nozzles by position of the handle C.

In addition nozzles 3 and 4 can be separately open or closed.

The nozzle is closed: the side disk regulator on.

The nozzle is opened: the side disk regulator on.

Depending on position of the disk regulator the air stream changes the direction on height.

If to turn the disk regulator under a deflector lattice, the direction of an air stream in the horizontal plane changes.

By means of snuffled 2 remains not misted over the lower part of a windshield.

How to clear of ice wind and side glasses

To install the switch B on a step 3.

To turn the handle A clockwise against the stop.

The handle C on.

4 to establish nozzles so that the stream of air was directed to side glasses.

How to prevent fogging wind and side glasses

If at high humidity of air, for example, during a rain, windows mist over, it is recommended to make the following:

To put the switch B on a step 2 or 3.

The handle A if it is necessary to transfer to an air heating zone.

To put the handle C on.

Through nozzles 4 it is possible to direct in addition warm air to side glasses.

Ventilation (supply of fresh air in salon)

At the provision of governing bodies below from snuffled 3 and 4 not warmed up fresh air moves:

To put the switch B on a desirable step.

To turn the handle A counterclockwise against the stop.

The handle C on.

When fogging a windshield to put the handle C on.

At will the handle C can be put in other position also.

3 and 4 to open nozzles.

How quickly to increase temperature in salon

To put the switch B on a step 3.

To turn the handle A clockwise against the stop.

To put the handle C on.

When fogging a windshield to put the handle C on.

4 to establish nozzles at will.

How to support pleasant heat in salon

After windows were cleared of fogging and temperature in salon reached desirable level, it is recommended to make the following:

To put the switch B on a desirable step.

To install the handle A on desirable heating.

To install the handle C in a zone between "An air stream in a zone of legs" and "Cleaning of ice wind and side glasses".

When fogging a windshield to install the handle C on.

4 to establish nozzles at will.

How to set the mode of normal cooling of air

To put the switch B on a desirable step.

To put the handle A on desirable air temperature (also heating is possible).

To put the handle C in desirable position.

In such position of the handle there has to be at least one nozzle in the dashboard open differently the refrigeration unit can ice over.

Pressing of a key D to include climatic installation.

3 and 4 to establish nozzles at will.

How to set the mode of the maximum cooling of air

To put the switch B on a step 4.

To turn the handle A counterclockwise against the stop.

To install the handle C on.

In such position of the handle C there has to be at least one nozzle in the dashboard open, otherwise the refrigeration unit can ice over.

When fogging a windshield to put the handle C on.

In such position of the handle About the mode of recirculation it is impossible.

To close all windows and the lifting and movable panel of a roof.

Pressing of a key E to set the air recirculation mode.


Prevention

The mode of recirculation of air has to be included, however, only for a short time as at this mode fresh air does not come to salon.


Pressing of a key D to include climatic installation.

3 and 4 to open nozzles.

At least one nozzle always has to remain open, otherwise the refrigeration unit can ice over.

Economic operation of climatic installation

During the work of installation in the air cooling mode, the drive of its compressor is carried out from the engine and therefore the nature of use of installation influences fuel consumption. That whenever possible to reduce duration of work of climatic installation it is necessary to consider the following recommendations.

If the internal space of the standing car strongly heated up under the influence of sunlight, a rekomenda etsyatsya to open for a short time windows or doors to air salon.

If during the movement windows are open or the hatch of a roof it is not necessary to include climatic installation.

When desirable air temperature in salon can be reached and without inclusion of climatic installation it is better to use system of ventilation of salon.

General instructions

At high temperature and big humidity of external air the condensate dropping from the evaporator and formation of a puddle under the car is possible. This normal phenomenon and it is not a sign of violation of tightness of system.

In any intermediate position it is possible to install only handles A and C.

To avoid fogging of glasses, it is necessary to include at a small speed of the movement of the car constantly the handle In the lowest step of an operating mode of the fan, and to put the handle C in position.

If climatic installation was not included for a long time, it is possible at its inclusion emergence of an unpleasant smell owing to different accumulation of deposits on the evaporator. To avoid emergence of an unpleasant smell, it is necessary to include climatic installation – as well in cold season – at least once a month at the highest step of operation of the fan. At the same time to open for a short time one of windows.

Heating ability of system of heating depends on temperature of cooling liquid of the cooling system of the engine – therefore the biggest heating happens at the engine which is warmed up up to the working temperature.

In order that heating, ventilation and climatic installation worked reliably, the opening for an intake of fresh air located before a windshield is necessary to hold pure from ice, snow and leaves.

The used air is removed through exhaust outlets in a back part of a body; these openings should not be partitioned off.

On the car the sedan it is impossible to block something a crack between the luggage shelf and back glass which serves for removal of the used air.

Violations in work of climatic installation

If failure of climatic installation is observed, then it can be caused by the following reasons:

 – temperature of external air is below about +5 °C;
 – the safety lock fused. It is necessary to check a safety lock and if necessary to replace it. If a cause of failure in work not in the burned-down safety lock, climatic installation it is necessary to switch off and address experts;
 – climatic installation was temporarily turned off owing to too high temperature of cooling liquid.

If installation refrigerating capacity decreased, it is necessary to switch off installation and to address experts.
