Misting on inside of windscreen

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have recently got a lupo as my first car. With the cold weather upon us I have been getting a lot of condensation on the inside of the window screen and it takes 10-15 mins to clear it alsofreezes over night on especially cold nights. So I was just wondering if anyone has any tips to prevent this?

Get a few of those silica gel pouches chucked in there.

Is there a sweet smell ?

 

Could be heater matrix or water build up in the scuttle area allowing water into the blowers..

Im going for heater matrix.

if the matrix has gone the window never clears as your blowing water vapour at it

f you have air con leeve it on at all times and set the fan for fresh air not reserculate ,the air con will dry the air cold air is dry so drawing in cold air from out side will absorb moisture faster than damp air allready in the car...

Surely if you're pulling in fresh air you're constantly getting fresh, moist air.

Cold air is naturally dry thus will absorb moisture from inside the car.
