How do I quickly defrost the windshield?

If you need to defrost the windshield in a hurry, you can do so. Simply turn the Air Flow Control dial to Defroster, turn the Fan Speed Control dial to maximum, and turn the Temperature Control dial to hot. When the windshield has defrosted, return the dials to a less extreme setting.
