    Default Steamy windows!

    hi all i have a little problem with the rear windscreen, it seems to mist up a little too easily. does this happen on all of them? when i first got the car you had to really slam the boot the shut it so i adjust the catch and this is now better. Do you think it is not closing enough now and letting moisture in? there are no wet patches in the boot.

    Cheers chaps

    I noticed this when I first had my Signum. Since then I've cleaned, cleaned and cleaned the glass and used a good glass polish, every 2-3 weeks. Now it doesn't "mist-up" at all and stays bone dry.

    I use my air-con all the time.... never noticed any difference in fuel economy, and it helps to keep the interior 'fog-free' all through the winter.

    check your pollen filter is dry. Change if in any doubt.

    also check it's clean!!..

    they get filthy and block the airflow..less air movement gives it chance to mist, and takes longer to clear it..

    not got a leaking bootseal have you??
