    Default Air con and funny goings on

    Stuck in some heavy traffic this afternoon, put the AirCon on and had the air flow going to windscreen and footwell , then started to notice condensation appearing on the windscreen in a circular fashion just above where the windscreen/upper dashboard air vents are and thought 'that's strange , not seen that before' went to wipe it and nothing, turned on wipers and it cleared, so was actually on the outside of the windscreen!! anyone seen that happen before?
    Cheers Pete

    Yes I have, just where the cold air hits the screen and it condenses the water on the out side
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yeah I guess , with it being quite warm and humid at the moment and the cold air being directed particularly at that part of the windscreen , I can seen how the temp' difference would cause it, it wa just strange I'd never noticed it happening before.

    Saw your post on another thread mate, with regards to the warranty I ended up going through CSMA (which you have to be a member of and got membership thru' my dad who was in the civil service) at £222 which covers all I need and includes MOT insurance.
