Default Audi Coupe - 'REC' button?

Hi there, I just bought my first Audi (a 1995 2.0E Coupe), but am a bit puzzled about the REC button on the centre console. It is located directly underneath the AirCon button. My best guess so far is that it is a Recycle button for the a/c but i'm not 100% sure on this.

Any help/info would be much appreciated.


Many thanks Keith.

thats for AC. crud, I forgot the whole name, basically when your AC is on, and you press that button, instead of air being taking from outside, it will be sucked from inside the car, so basically more cold.
it will suck air from underneathe the passenger side. You can hear the sound change when you do that.
solenoid powered by vacuem, its there at the bottom right corner of the glove compartment door.
You can see the door, when you open the hood, and pop the cover at the passenger side, there be the intake, but when you press the botton, the door closes it and the air motor sucks air pass it.

when pressed it uses interior air for Recirculation so when its damp outside the windows steam up that's when you don't use it
