Rear screen demist and defrost

Citroen C3 / Citroen C3 Owner's Manual / Heating/ventilation / Rear screen demist and defrost

The control button is located on

The control button is located on the heating or air conditioning system control panel.

Switching on

The rear screen demisting/defrosting can only operate when the engine is running.

Press this button to demist/defrost the rear screen and (depending on version) the exterior mirrors. The indicator lamp associated with the button comes on.

Switching off

The demisting/defrosting switches off automatically to prevent an excessive consumption of current.

It is possible to stop the demisting/ defrosting operation before it is switched off automatically by pressing the button again. The indicator lamp associated with the button switches off.

If the engine is switched off before the demisting/defrosting is switched off automatically, demisting/ defrosting will resume next time the engine is switched on.

Switch off the demisting/defrosting of the rear screen and exterior mirrors as soon as you consider this necessary as lower current consumption results in reduced fuel consumption.
