ELECTRIC WINDOWS

WARNING

To prevent accidental operation, never leave the smart key inside the vehicle if children or animals are also left inside the vehicle. Removal of the smart key prevents unsupervised operation of the windows, and the panoramic or canvas roof, which may result in serious injury or death.

WARNING

If children are carried in the rear seats, the isolator button should be used to prevent operation of the windows and doors. If the windows or doors are operated by children, there is a risk of serious injury or death.

CAUTION

Any ice must be removed from the windows before operating. Operating icy windows can cause damage to the windows' operating system.

NOTES

5-door vehicle is illustrated, 3-door vehicles are similar.

NOTES

Each switch has a two-stage operation. Lightly press or pull and hold to manually operate to the required position. Alternatively, press or pull fully and release for one-touch operation. Press the switch again to halt the one-touch operation at any time.

To operate the windows:

  1. Window switches:

    Briefly pull a switch fully up, and release to close a window.

    Briefly press a switch fully down, and release to fully open a window.

    Press or pull a switch again to stop movement of the window.

    NOTES

    The windows operate for 5 minutes after the engine is switched off, as long as none of the doors are opened.

    Rear windows have a short drop feature for passenger comfort. The first press of a switch lowers the window a short distance, to give a flow of air. A second press lowers the window to its full extent. If a resonance or booming sound occurs when a rear window is open, lowering an adjacent front window by approximately 25 mm eliminates the condition.

  2. Rear window isolator and child safety locks. See CHILD SAFETY LOCKS.

For information on global opening or closing of the windows see the relevant section in the Owner's Handbook. See GLOBAL OPENING or GLOBAL CLOSING.

Vehicles with sliding panoramic roof:
CAUTION

To prevent accidental damage, make sure any roof rack load does not interfere with the opening of the panoramic roof.

  1. Panoramic roof:

    NOTES

    The front and rear of the switch has a two-stage operation. Lightly press and hold to manually operate to the required position. Alternatively, press fully and release for one-touch operation. Press the switch again to halt the one-touch operation at any time.

    With the panoramic roof closed, press the rear of the switch to partially or fully raise the roof to the tilt position. Press the rear of the switch again to partially or fully open the roof.

    NOTES

    If the roof blind is closed, the panoramic roof switch also opens the roof blind while operating the panoramic roof.

    With the panoramic roof open, press the front of the switch to partially or fully close the panoramic roof.

  2. Roof blind:

    The roof blind can be opened whenever required, but it can only be closed when the panoramic roof is closed. If the panoramic roof is partially closed, the roof blind only partially closes to the same position.

    NOTES

    The front and rear of the switch has a two-stage operation. Lightly press and hold to manually operate to the required position. Alternatively, press fully and release for one-touch operation. Press the switch again to halt the one-touch operation at any time.

    Press the rear of the switch to partially or fully open.

    Press the front of the switch to partially or fully close.

Vehicles with sliding canvas roof:
WARNING

The sliding canvas roof does not have an anti-trap facility. The canvas roof must be clear of obstruction to allow safe operation. If the canvas roof motion is blocked by body parts, there is a risk of serious injury or death.

CAUTION

The sliding canvas roof is not compatible with lateral cross-bars or roof rack equipment. Using unapproved roof mounted equipment could result in damage to the sliding canvas roof.

CAUTION

To prevent accidental damage, make sure any roof accessories do not interfere with the opening of the sliding canvas roof. The sliding canvas roof requires a minimum of 180 mm clearance between any roof accessories and the top of the roof.

CAUTION

Operation of the sliding canvas roof is not recommended in temperatures below -10˚C. Damage may occur if the canvas roof is operated below -10˚C.

NOTES

The front and rear of the switch has a two-stage operation. Lightly press and hold to manually operate to the required position. Alternatively, press fully and release for one-touch operation. Press the switch again to halt the one-touch operation at any time.

  • With the sliding canvas roof closed, press the rear of the switch to partially or fully open the sliding canvas roof.

  • With the sliding canvas roof open, press the front of the switch to partially close the sliding canvas roof.

  • Press and hold the front of the switch to fully close the sliding canvas roof.

    NOTES

    One-touch operation does not fully close the sliding canvas roof.

NOTES

Varying resonance noises can occur in the cabin when the sliding canvas roof is open, due to pressure fluctuation. To reduce or eliminate these noises, the sliding canvas roof can be closed slightly.
