    Vehicle : insignia

    Trim : irmscher

    Engine : 2.0 cdti

    Year : 2009

    Default Condensation

    Seem to be getting bad condensation on windscreen its absolutely soaking in mornings, and if cars left for a while.

    Had this before and vauxhall stated "They all do it" I drive with A/C on most of the time, just to try and get it dehumidified, but still the same

    And to cap it all off, vauxhall tried fixing my blowers last year as they didn't reset back to original setting after putting on front windscreen blowers, they use to blow at full throttle "6" but I have just noticed when i press front windscreen button, they are only blowing at 5, so have to turn knob up to 6 to clear.

    Mine does the same have to have quick clear on for a while. Ive notice if you drive with the drivers window down ever so slightly that helps to keep it clear

    Never had this in mine. The CC is permanently on so I don't know if that makes any difference.

    This happens when you use the aircon alot, It happens on my Astra J. The way to stop it by NOT using the aircon and leave your window open slightly when driving as well has windscreen blowers until it clears. This way the climate inside the car can match the outside and stops it.

    When you park up and before you turn engine off set the vents to 'feet' rather than 'windscreen' as there is still warm air coming up the vents and condensing on the cold windscreen without being blown.

    It won't stop it 100% but it will cut the condensation down a bit. Take your floor mats in and dry them on a radiator, I bet they are fairly damp at the moment and will be releasing a fair amount of moisture when interior heats up.
