    Default Vent reflection on windscreen!

    As the title says, I get a reflection on windscreen from the big blower vent, and it's quite irritating once you know it's there! Has anyone come up with any suitable fixes for this perhaps?

    That is with matt, and I can still see it a bit. I guess this is just a design flaw then?

    Stop looking for it! Or put an even more annoying thing on your dashboard to grab your attention.

    I've not been in any car where this doesn't happen. Laws of physics I guess. Doesn't really bother me as my focus is way past the point of my windscreen.

    True, should really be looking thru the screen instead of at it I guess!!
    I need a new screen anyway, as I've also noticed this one has the old soft glass syndrome, i.e hundreds of little marks from motorway use by previous owner. Not noticeable tho, until you face into a low sun that is, then suddenly you can't see a thing!!

    You might find that a pair of sunglasses (or indeed normal glasses) with polarised filters cut the reflection almost completely.

    I had a Picasso (don't laugh) and the whole of the upper dash used to reflect in the windscreen, it really used to grate on me... ask any Picasso owner - Just not the ones smart enough to buy one with a dark dash colour. It really used to get very bad on some days, so much you you could hardly see the road!
