    windows misting

    Daft problem really but when ever we have the slightest bit of rain or cold weather all the windows mist over even if I have the demisters on or not. It doesn't matter if I have the demisters on full chat or low it still happens. I've checked the demisters and they work fine. Any ideas on this would be great as it is really starting to get annoying now ta

    Chnage your pollen filter first, that will eliminate if it's that.

    You'll always get misting windows in the cold (temp difference between inside and outside of the glass), but keeping the windows clean on the inside and keeping the pollen filter changed every year will help it clear more quickly.

    Once it clears, turn the blowers off the screen - because the blowers make the glass hotter, the temp difference becomes greater so it becomes more likely to mist if you turn the blowers down or move them off the screen.

    as above change pollen filter and if you got it just turn the a/c on with heater still on hot and it will draw the moisture out of the air

    You can use the aircon to make the incoming air warmer or colder so it isn't damagng anything.

    Cheers for the input chaps. Like I said it doesn't matter if I've got the demisters on 1 or 4 they still mist up as soon As I turn the demisters down.
    I also noticed that my aircon is putting a hell of a strain on the engine when turned on (I do know it does anyway but it does seam to be bad I've never heard a car struggle so bad with aircon on before) could this also be the pollen filter as well?
    Another silly question where is the pollen filter?
