    Lol.
    Great answer that Skuzzle.

    It is a "problem" with air-con.
    I had it while driving down to the Isle of White. In a matter of seconds couldn't see a thing. Turned the heat up to HOT and the blower up to 4. Wound down both windows, didn't take long to clear. The only way it doesn't happen is DON'T use the air con.

    It only happens to me in the wet, is this right?

    My Focus suffers from this - but only when the direction is all on to the screen, with the recirculation on, and the weather is humid.

    Easily fixed by redirecting the a/c off the screen (to the feet), and making sure recirc. is off.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    your focus shoudl have a heated front screen tho kitch! my dads mondeo is just a basic 1.8 LX and it's got the heated front screen and when we put the air-con on it keeps the window clear! our windscreen fogs hen it's humid or raining just use the heated front screen to keep it clear

    Strange, it was very humid and pissing down this morning, I was misting up badly, and the only way I cleared it was when the air-con was turned on and directed to the windscreen, screen cleared within about 5 secs.
