Air con windscreen heater

On my 156 on the heater position selector, there is a windscreen max mode, When i got my car at first i put it on and straight away the air con kicked in and starting blowing hard. I turned it on this morning and it took about 5 mins to even start blowing, i think this mode is ment to clear your windows quick but it dont come on like it used too, The fan on number 4 works fine but only when the engine is warm, Is this a problem with the air con, Thanks for any help

Re: Air con windscreen heater

air-con doesn't work when it's below 5c I believe.

My GT said -3.0c this morning at 8am!

Re: Air con windscreen heater

Mine does the same, I think it won't blow automatically until the engine is warm enough for the demist to be properly effective. I usually set the fan to max manually to get some effect straight away. The JTD is really slow to warm up unfortunately, despite a thermostat change.
