    Sopping wet window.

    A stupid question but how can i stop or at least reduce how wet my windows get on the inside?
    it is a bloody nightmare because if you wipe it you just make the inside dirty and lately mine has been that wet it takes 45 mins to heat up the car enough for it to go.

    How much water? Turn your aircon on with your heaters and it draws moisture out.

    Have you tried big packets of silica gel? I had them in my corsa and it worked wonders. I'm not sure where you would get them from though :/ I got them from the warehouse I used to work in...

    I've been told the best thing to do is next time you're out in your car for a drive blast the heaters and keep the windows down a bit, it lets the moisture out of the car instead of just heating it up and moving it around the cabin, give it a try a few times

    so the advice of air con plus heat will work well too? Apart from apparantly drinking more fuel lol.
    I will try the silica gel idea too.

    if you have that much water in there sounds like you might have a water leak into the car. Check to see if the carpets are wet and in the boot/ spare wheel well ect to see if its damp.
