307 Climate Control

Discussion in 'Peugeot 307' started by Howard Pollock, May 11, 2004.

  1. Greetings everyone,

    The 'climate control' on my car doesn't seem to be working properly (at
    least it seems to me)

    During the winter, the car heated up fine using the 'auto' setting. Heat
    was distributed by the windscreen and footwell vents etc. However, now
    that things are warming up in the UK, the car doesn't cool down on the
    'auto' setting. I hear the fans starting up, but no cool air out of any
    vents, unless I open the face vents and then I am blasted with freezing
    air!!

    If I manually set the controls to windscreen/footwell distribution, it
    works OK, but the documentation definitely says that this should be
    automatic. The dealership tell me there is nothing wrong and that this is
    normal operation

    Can anyone else with climate control (digital air con) please tell me how
    their vehicle operates when cooling down?

    Thanks, in advance

    Just tried mine (307SWw digital climate control), closed all face level
    vents,turned temp down to 14,AC set to Auto, not much evidence of any
    cooling effect, pressing the air distribution button to screen or
    footwell, produced a noticable cooling effect, putting back to auto, and
    it stopped. Open face level vents, plenty of cooling

    So it does seem in auto that the cool air is only/mainly directed to the
    face level vents

    In
    Don't think you are supposed to close all the face vent's for this reason.
    I think my 206 is the same

    yes, on my 307sw this is the same: you must keep all (or at least some of
    them, I would assume) the face vents FULLY OPEN, and in this case the
    aircond works the best way (efficient+silent)

    Hi,
    I believe in the users manual it specifically says to keep the vents open
    when the air con is on. I find mine a bit too cold (from the vents)
    sometimes so regularly just point it up to the ceiling and down to the
    floor when I am using air con.

    Thanks to everyone that replied. Looks as though my dealer was right after
    all!

    Regards
