Default Auto Air Circ? Do I have it?

Looking to upgrade the climatronic panel on my Eos. Would an '07 Eos VR6 have auto air recirc? Where would I look to see if I have it. Would it be a setting in VCDS?

My 2009 Highline doesn't have it. Only manual recirc. I don't recall seeing it as an option in the manual either.

On my Touareg, there is a separate recirc button with an "A" on it that activates the auto recirculation feature. But on the Eos? Sorry, not sure.

Mine doesn't have an auto-recirculate function, either.

I think you just need to put the top down for that.

Isn't it strange that VW put loads of diesel cars on the roads with EPA violation, whilst advertising innovative Automatic Air Recirculation?

My Tdi has a manual switch, but being a diesel, if it was automatic maybe it would be recircing all the time and send me to sleep? I wonder what happens when people smoke in their car with this? VW would have done better saving money on and spending it on Adblue earlier on.

I'm looking to upgrade to the Mk7 style Climatronic control. I wonder if the panels with auto air recirc will work then?


I need this exact control panel, but cannot find the part number. I think I found a kit for a different car, might just have to buy both and see what happens lol.

The auto recirculate uses a sensor that detects hydrocarbons (I'm guessing) to know when to enter recirculate mode. On the Touareg, it also enters that mode when in reverse and when you activate the windshield washers, IIRC.

If the programming is in the control panel shown, part of it might work. Otherwise, it might just be a pretty button.
