Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Air recirculation mode

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

General notes

There are different types of air recirculation mode:
Manual air recirculation mode (Heating and fresh air system).
Manual air recirculation mode (Air conditioning system (manual)).
Left indicator lamp lit up in the button: manual air recirculation mode (Climatronic).
Right indicator lamp lit up in the button: automatic air recirculation mode (Climatronic).

The air recirculation mode prevents outside air entering the vehicle.

If the outside temperature is very low or very high, the manual air recirculation mode should be selected for a short time in order to heat or cool the vehicle interior more quickly.

For safety reasons, the air recirculation mode will switch off if the button or is pressed or if the air distribution regulator is switched to  .

Switching the manual air recirculation mode for air conditioning system (manual) or heating and fresh air system on and off

Switching on: press button or until the indicator lamp in the button lights up.

Switching off: press button or until the indicator lamp in the button is no longer lit up.

Switching the manual air recirculation mode on and off in the Climatronic

Switching on: press the button until the left indicator lamp in the button lights up.

Switching off: press button until the warning lamp under the symbol is not lit up.

Function of the automatic air recirculation mode

In position fresh air will enter the vehicle interior. The air recirculation mode will switch on automatically if the system detects an increase in the concentration of noxious substances in the outside air. The air recirculation mode will switch off as soon as this level has returned to normal.

The system cannot detect unpleasant smells.

The air recirculation mode will not be switched on automatically with the following outside temperatures and conditions:

  • The cooling system is switched on (indicator lamp in the button AC is lit up) and the ambient temperature is colder than +3° C (+38° F).
  • The cooling system and the windscreen wipers are switched off and the ambient temperature is colder than +10° C (+50° F).
  • The cooling system is switched off, the ambient temperature is colder than +15° C (+59° F) and the windscreen wiper is switched on.

Switching the automatic air recirculation mode on and off

Switching on: press the button until the indicator lamp in the button lights up.

Switching off: press button until the warning lamp under the symbol is not lit up.

Switching the automatic air recirculation mode off temporarily

  • Press the button   once to select the manual mode if unpleasant odours are detected.
  • Press the button again after more than two seconds have elapsed in order to reactivate the automatic air recirculation mode.

WARNING

Stale air can quickly cause tiredness and lack of concentration in the driver which in turn can cause collisions, accidents and serious injuries.
  • Never use the air recirculation mode for an extended period as no fresh air will enter the vehicle interior.
  • If the cooling system is switched off, the windows could mist up very quickly in the air recirculation mode and reduce visibility considerably.
  • Always switch off the air recirculation mode if it is not required.

NOTICE

In vehicles with an air conditioning system, do not smoke when the air recirculation mode is switched on. The smoke drawn into the cooling system can leave a residue on the evaporator and the dust and pollen filter, producing a permanent, unpleasant odour.

Climatronic: when reversing the vehicle or when the wash and wipe system is being used, the air recirculation mode will switch on temporarily to prevent exhaust emissions from entering the vehicle interior.
