    Press Auto to turn on C/C. Deselect it and you'll be running just A/C. Turn that off when the engine's warm and you'll get heat only.

    As Phil and most others agree, nice and easy to just run C/C, it hardly impacts on your mpg overall.

    Excellent, thanks everyone. Really appreciate the advice. I'll have a play, when the weather warms up!

    Note to self: So, it's green for aircon on, pink for climate off, alternating flashing yellow & silver for Radio 2 and tartan to alter the clock

    Cheers all

    I just leave my Climate control on auto all year round. The gas going through the system lubricates the seals and stops them going brittle and leaking. Extended A/c off periods can prove more expensive than a simple regas if seals and extra work is needed.
    I have never had a compressor failure yet but one of my rarely used cars is now without working A/c due to extended periods of lying idle and as such is in need of A/c servicing every year which seems a little pointless for the amount of miles I do in it.

    Hi everyone and thanks for all the advice/feedback. I think I have it sorted now!

    I do get a bit confused by Auto mode (climate) though. It just sort of puts everything on full and boils me to death, so I end up turning down the temp and fan which of course puts everything back to Manual. Which defeats the object really.

    Auto mode should maintain the internal temperature of the car to whatever you have it set at. Mine stays at 20.5 virtually all year round. Altering the temperature should not turn off auto mode. Adjusting the fan will turn off auto mode and so will pressing the max button by the heated front/rear windscreen but auto should return as soon as you turn off Max but that is normally only used first thing to clear your windscreen quickly.
