Operating Tips for Heater and Air Conditioners
Cleaning Ventilator Grille
- Front ventilator inlet grille
Always keep the front ventilator inlet grille free of snow, leaves, or other obstructions to ensure efficient heating and defrosting. Since the condenser is located in front of the radiator, this area should be kept clean because cooling performance is impaired by any accumulation of insects and leaves on the condenser.
Efficient Cooling after Parking in Direct Sunlight
After parking in direct sunlight, drive with the windows open for a few minutes to allow outside air to circulate into the heated interior. This results in quicker cooling by the air conditioner. Keep the windows closed during the operation of the air conditioner for maximum cooling efficiency.
Lubrication Oil Circulation in the Refrigerant Circuit
Operate the air conditioner compressor at a low engine speed (at idle or low driving speeds) for a few minutes each month during the off-season to circulate its oil.
Checking Air Conditioning System Before Summer Season
Check the air conditioner unit for refrigerant leaks, hose conditions, and proper operation each spring. Have the air conditioning system checked by your SUBARU dealer.
Cooling and Dehumidifying in High-Humidity and Low-Temperature Weather Conditions
Under certain weather conditions (high relative humidity, low temperatures, etc.) a small amount of water vapor emission from the air outlets may be noticed. This condition is normal and does not indicate any problem with the air conditioning system.
Air Conditioner Compressor Shut-Off When Engine Is Heavily Loaded
To improve acceleration and gas mileage, the air conditioner compressor is designed to temporarily shut off during air conditioner operation whenever the accelerator is fully depressed such as during rapid acceleration or when driving on a steep upgrade.
Refrigerant for Your Climate Control System
Air conditioner label
Your air conditioner uses ozone-friendly refrigerant R-1234yf (HFO-1234yf). Before adding, changing or checking the refrigerant, check the air conditioner label in the location shown in the illustration to confirm which type of refrigerant is used in your vehicle. Consult your SUBARU dealer for service. Repairs needed as a result of using the wrong refrigerant are not covered under warranty.
Air Filtration System
Your vehicle’s air conditioning system is equipped with an air filtration system. Replace the cabin air filter according to the replacement schedule found in the “Warranty and Maintenance Booklet”. This schedule should be followed to maintain the filter’s dust collection ability. Under extremely dusty conditions, the filter should be replaced more frequently. Have your filter checked or replaced by your SUBARU dealer. For replacement, use only a genuine SUBARU air filter kit.
Contact your SUBARU dealer if the following occurs, even if it is not yet time to change the filter.
- Reduction of the airflow through the vents.
- The windshield gets easily fogged or misted.
The filter can influence the air conditioning, heating, and defroster performance if not properly maintained.
Replacing the Cabin Air Filter
- Remove the glove box.
- Open the glove box.
- Remove the damper shaft from the glove box.
- Push both sides of the glove box inward to unlock the stoppers and then pull down the glove box as far as it will go.
Remove the cabin air filter according to the following procedure in order to prevent dust on the air cleaner from falling to the inside of its housing.
- Pinch both tabs and remove the filter cover.
- Gently tilt down the end of the filter and slowly pull it out 0.4 in (1 cm).
- Slowly pull out the rest of the filter.
Replace the cabin air filter with a new one and then reinstall the cover.
The arrow mark on the filter must point to UP.
- Reinstall the glove box, and connect the damper shaft.
- Close the glove box.
