Service
For optimal cooling performance, it is
recommended that the climate control
system be checked annually, starting
three years after initial vehicle
registration, including:
■ Functionality and pressure test
■ Heating functionality
■ Leakage check
■ Check of drive belts
■ Cleaning of condenser and
  evaporator drainage
■ Performance check
