    Default Aircon.....

    I know this is in the wrong section, but I cant get into the relevent forum, but does anyone know or have idea's as to why my windows suddenly fog up to the point of zero visibility as soon as my air con is turned off, non of my previous cars did this, and is rather disturbing when it happens on the motorway

    Check the area around you pollen filter and the drain hole that is below the filter element. Maybe a new filter would be a good idea.

    Is the water drain from the chiller blocked?

    By the sound of it the vectra need to have air circulating throught the car. I have seen the sort of "side vents" on the Vectra B but have not noticed them on the C. But it does make sence trhough.
