    Hi, I take it your blowing cold air onto the screen then?

    No air-con in the car? If you had air-con you never suffer from misting if you use it.

    Check to see if your pollen filter is clogged, this can cause misty windows.

    as monty said bet you that is the issue, or drains clogged up with leaves and water getting into the air system under the bonnet

    Hi thanks for the replies. the car has got air con n it makes no difference if its hot or cold air its blowing, the only way i can stop it fogging up is to have the aircon on constantly. Will try the pollen filter
    Cheers lads

    Mine is the same. I've changed the pollen filter, it only helps a little. Keeping the inside of the glass clean with a cleaner helps more than anything. Usually I give up and open the window as well.

    if there is a sweet smell in the car from the air and the engine water level drops slowly then the heater matrix might be leaking
