    are u sure its a leak, sounds normal to me unless ur heater matrix is broken.

    u can buy products to stop it from misting its a window cleaner, just clean it with washin up liquid and make sure u dry it propply.

    there are 2 water drains under the scutttle panel.

    try cleaning them

    if they were blocked, maybe your pollen filter will be wet.......

    Unlikely the heater matrix has gone as you will be able to smell coolant in the car and your coolant level will be dropping.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Vectra's are beggers for misting up, but as has been said, it's very likely the scuttle drains are blocked and the pollen filter is wet. Check and clear drains,(the drivers side one on mine was completely blocked) fit new pollen filter and clean inside of windscreen. I found if i clean the inside of glass regularly, it doesn't seem to mist quite so fast.
