Skoda Fabia: Heating, ventilation, cooling

Skoda Fabia Owners Manual

The heating effect is dependent upon the coolant temperature, thus full heat output only occurs when the engine has reached its operating temperature.

If the cooling system is switched on, the temperature and air humidity drops in the vehicle. The cooling system prevents the windows from misting up when outside temperatures are particularly low.

It is possible to briefly activate recirculated air mode to enhance the cooling effect.

Please refer to the information regarding recirculated air mode for the air-conditioning system » page 90 or for Climatronic » page 92.


For your own safety and that of other road users, ensure that all the windows are free of ice, snow and misting. Please familiarize yourself about how to correctly operate the heating and ventilation systems, how to demist and defrost the windows, as well as with the cooling mode.


  • The air inlet in front of the windscreen must be free (e.g. of ice, snow or leaves) to ensure that the heating and cooling system operates properly.
  • After switching on the cooling Condensation from the evaporator of the air conditioning may drip down and form a puddle below the vehicle. This is not a leak.


  • The exhaust air streams out through vents at the rear of the luggage compartment.
  • We recommend that you do not smoke in the vehicle when the recirculating air mode is operating since the smoke which is drawn at the evaporator from the interior of the vehicle forms deposits in the evaporator of the air conditioning system. This produces a permanent odour when the air conditioning system is operating which can only be eliminated through considerable effort and expense (replacement of compressor).

Air outlets

Fig. 94 Air outlet vents
Fig. 94 Air outlet vents

Warmed, not warmed fresh or cooled air will flow out of the opened air outlet vents according to the setting of the control and the outside atmospheric conditions.

The direction of airflow can be adjusted using the air outlet vents 3 and 4 » Fig. 94 and the outlets can also be opened and closed individually.

Open the air outlet vents 3 and 4

  • Turn the vertical wheel (air vents 3) » Fig. 94 or the horizontal wheel (air outlet nozzles 4) to the position.

Close air outlet vents 3 and 4

  • Turn the vertical wheel (air vents 3) » Fig. 94 or the horizontal wheel (air outlet nozzles 4) to the 0 position.

Change air flow of air outlet vents 3 and 4

  • In order to change the strength of the air flow, swivel the horizontal lamellas with the aid of the moveable adjuster » Fig. 94.
  • In order to change the lateral direction of the air flow, swivel the vertical lamellas with the aid of the moveable adjuster.

Set the air supply to the individual vents with the air distribution control C » Fig. 95 on page 87.


Do not cover the air outlet vents with objects of any kind.

Using the air conditioning system economically

The air conditioning system compressor uses power from the engine when in cooling mode, which will affect the fuel consumption.

It recommended to open the windows or the doors of a vehicle for which the interior has been strongly heated through the effect of direct sunlight in order to allow the heated air to escape.

The cooling system should not be switched on if the windows are open.

For the sake of the environment

Pollutant emissions are also lower when fuel is being saved » page 110.

Operational problems

If the cooling system does not operate at outside temperatures higher than +5 °C, there is a problem in the system. The reasons for this may be.

  • One of the fuses has blown. Check the fuse and replace if necessary » page 167.
  • The cooling system has switched off automatically for a short time because the coolant temperature of the engine is too hot » page 27.

If you are not able to resolve the fault yourself, or if the cooling output has reduced, switch off the cooling system and obtain assistance from a specialist garage.
