    Default Car windows misting up

    Anyone else have a problem with this in their veccys ? I know all cars do it but I've never owned a car as bad as the vectra for suffering with this. The windscreen clearer blower thingy works awesomely but i find i need to use it every few mins when it rains

    Change the pollen filter and make sure the compartment it lives in is properly sealed.

    Job done.

    I have found the same on my facelift veccie. Never had a problem in either the vectra b or astra mark3 I have had in the past. The back windows are really bad too. Could this be because there are no rear passenger air ducts in the veccie c? Had in both my other cars and no problems at all

    Simple answer guys......AIRCON!

    Mine stays on permanently (except for about 10 minutes on the RR last week) and I never have steamed up windows. Only have the fan on speed 1 or 2, and the airflow directed at my face and feet.

    Easy

    As mentioned, Aircon works a treat, but increases fuel consumption significantly. I use it sparingly.

    Same problems here m8 in rain and in mornings.

    Air Con works every time though. Try the quick blower first and add the air con if required.
