Default Normfest AC cleaner requires AC Off but a cold setting?

How can I do this on a CL500. 2009
Yes I can get it to recicle the air, and they say they want a cold setting, and max blower - OK I can do that.
But re the cold setting, It will go down to 16C, one more click and it says LO, which I suspect is definitely AC. But Normfest say turn the AC off.

There is an OFF button, if I press that, Command says "Climate Control Off" and the blowers stop.

So my problem is how to have a cold setting, with the blowers on ( which I think means having Climate control on ) and have the AC off?

They also say point the can at the passenger air intake. I assume thats the plastic grill in the passender footwell sort of under the glove compartment. By is that the Intake? When on recycle mode? Looks like cold air blows out of that.

Anyone done this on a CL500?

I did this on mine by turning the temperature down to minimum, blowers on maximum, recirculation on, putting the can on the centre console armrest, getting out and closing the door but NOT locking it.

Worked a treat.

Well the manual says if you turn the Automatic Climate control off, all air circulation stops, only do this for a short oeriod of time "risk of misting up"

So turning iff the ac seems a no go as the product wouldnt circulate.
Guess I could set it at 19C as thats not warm.

does the 216 have a button for AC? I know my 211 had a button that when pressed would then deactivate the AC but leave the rest of the climate control system on

As for the air intake, looks like the holes at the front blow out air, and I guess the holes at the back are the IN air. As I cant feel anything coming through them.

But maybe thats an out for hot air??

No there is an Off Button and a Rest button.
The Rest button is to use residual heat from the engine to warm the cabin after running the engine, its an option.

The off button, seems to shut off everything all fans etc. And Command then says . "automatic Climate control is switched off"

Hi Thanks
Did you have the engine on?
Does the C215 have Automatic Climate Control?

Out of interest was there any reason you chose to put it on the centre console rather than as they said in the passenger footwell.

I was thinking ... more bacteria on the drivers side than the passenger side ...
In my mind why not put it on one side for 5 mins and then the other side for 5 mins ( apart from getting gassed as you moved it :

hmm, just looked at a 216 interior, it doesn't have a separate AC button so I think as you say you will have to drop it to 19 and recirculation on. The last time I did one of these I placed the thing in the floor in the back, seemed to get everywhere with it on max circulation

The whole idea of these things is they work with a sealed system, by moving it half way through you effectively unseal the system by opening the door, this will reduce the effectiveness of the product

Thanks seems the only way, plus I will have to run the engine, or Command shuts down after 3 minutes.
