■ Location of air outlets
The air outlets and air volume change according to the selected airflow mode.
■ Adjusting the position of and opening and closing the air outlets
■Using automatic mode
Fan speed is adjusted automatically according to the temperature setting and the ambient conditions.
Therefore, the fan may stop for a while until warm or cool air is ready to flow immediately after is pressed.
■Fogging up of the windows
Turning on will dehumidify the air from the outlets and defog the windshield effectively.
■When driving on dusty roads
Close all windows. If dust thrown up by the vehicle is still drawn into the vehicle after closing the windows, it is recommended that the air intake mode be set to outside air mode and the fan speed to any setting except off.
■Outside/recirculated air mode
■When the outside temperature exceeds 75ºF (24ºC) and the air conditioning system is on
Vehicles with a smart key system: Recirculated air mode is selected as a default mode when the engine switch is turned to IGNITION ON mode.

■Ventilation and air conditioning odors
■Air conditioning system refrigerant
Air conditioning system
Air conditioning system lubricant type
Requires registered technician to service air conditioning system
Some functions can be customized.
■To prevent the windshield from fogging up
The difference between the temperature of the outside air and that of the windshield can cause the outer surface of the windshield to fog up, blocking your vision.
Otherwise, air flow may be obstructed, preventing the windshield defoggers from defogging.
■To prevent burns (vehicles with outside rear view mirror defoggers)
Do not touch the rear view mirror surfaces when the outside rear view mirror defoggers are on.
■To prevent battery discharge
Do not leave the air conditioning system on longer than necessary when the engine is stopped.
■When repairing/replacing parts of the air conditioning system
Have repair/replacement performed by your Toyota dealer.
When a part of the air conditioning system, such as the evaporator, is to be replaced, it must be replaced with a new one.
