    Default any help appreciated....................

    drove to airport in the rain and the windows started to mist up

    put the blowers to windscreen and on full........................nothing, didn't even attempt to clear

    (great fun on the motorway................NOT!!)

    the only way it would clear is with aircon on

    now thats not to bad in this weather, but its gonna be crap (and cold) in the winter.

    any ideas?

    Make sure your pollen filter is clean.
    I have always found the best way to clear the screen is with the aircon on in all the cars I have had. Did you turn the heating up when you put the blowers onto the windscreen? If you used cold air then it would have still been moisture laden and therefore woudl not have helped.
    I had a Ford once that actually shut down the windscreen vents when the pollen filter was full. It always happened on a wet day as well!

    As said replace pollen filter. It's also worth checking the drain holes in the scuttle tray, they block easily and the water can soak the filter and breach the cabin.

    Might sound daft, but you haven't got the heater on recirculate have you? If you have it can cause a car to become very moist on rainy days as there is no 'clean' air entering the cabin.

    "Recirculate" automatically disengages when you direct the air flow at the windscreen.
