  • Steaming up

    Is it me or do you have to drive everywhere with the aircon on in this wheather, or is it just me. The car just steams up all the time tried hot air cold air, full fan, doesnt do a thing. I have noticed how narrow the front blower for the window screen. Anyone know a solution to this.

          well its just moisture inside the cabin at the end of the day, just open your window slightly and put your heater on full. put up with the heat for a bit and the moisture will evap out of the window. sorted the same prob out for me.

            Don't use the anit mist stuff its rubbish, makes visability worse
            just open the window as suggested.

              Ive done a couple of threads about this, all i was told was to use the aircon, rubbish solution you shouldnt have to use aircon to clear mist if the ventilation system was designed correctly.

              senario : car was completely mist free inside after 8 mile drive, pulled into a 'pub carpark' car wash sat there while they did a great job, started up to drive away, all the interior misted up badly, should this happen ?

              senario : driving along mist free, it starts to rain, guess what, the interior mists up.

                  have you guys checked to see if the floor of the car is damp? Meant to be a factor in the windows misting up constantly

                      ditto

                      i bought this stuff, applied it, by doing everything it said, then went back out to the car to go for a drive and couldn't see a thing! Had to get some window polish out and it was so stubborn to get off! Stay well clear of it!

                          Agreed, but why does it happen on a modern car

                            Probably a long shot, but, probably the same as modern houses. Built so well with insulation here and seals there, they need extra vents to stop them from sweating/condensation. Anyone into planning will know this!

                            New cars are built soo much better I bet they just need to breath! Doors double sealed and everything just better made???

                            Does that make sense to anyone, or just me?
