Auto Aircon on reset problems

Hi guys, I have searched the forum on how to stop the aircon coming on automatically on my 2000 W reg 156 JTD, but I am struggling to get it to work. The instructions say for step 4, 'turn the direction knob to the mid position (fully to the right)'. Fully to the right on my 156 is the MAX defrost position. Could anyone please confirm what the 'MID' position actually is or the correct procedure for doing the aircon reset please.

Cheers, Hammo

Re: Auto Aircon on reset problems

for 156 models before approx april 2000. After that, only option is to use aircon button.

1. Put the ignition key in "STOP" position
2. Turn temperatur knob completely to the right (= max. temp)
3. Turn the blower knob to "0" position
4. Turn air direction knob to "mid direction" position (fully to the right)
5. WITHOUT STARTING THE ENGINE, turn the ignition key to "MAR"
6. Turn the blower knob AUTO-0-AUTO-0
7. Turn the ignition key back to "STOP"
7. Now press the air-con button to turn it off (or on if doing the reverse).
8. Turn the ignition key back to "STOP"
