    Default fffffreeeeezzzzinggggggg

    hi muckers

    has anyone got the same problem as me , everytime we get a big frost (which is often at the moment )
    the front and back windows get a lot of frost inside the car ,
    is there a tell tale sign here like the window seals are going or is it just a common thing we all have to live with when we bought our pride and joy.

    regards all
    and merry merry vectra to you all

    Seems to be an all too common problem. Someone mentioned the condition of the pollen filter can affect this - I'm guessing that an old, clogged pollen filter retains more moisture, so you'd be sucking damp air into the cabin most of the time which in cold weather becomes more obvious.

    Best I change mine PDQ then

    Try closing the air vents on the dash that are letting the cold air in.

    I would check the pollen filter. Just replaced mine so havent had the inside frost but my god.. the old one was disgusting! And weighed like 50kg looool.

    It could just be the moisture if you have brought a lot of water or snow inside over the past few days.. i.e. wet carpets?

    Another interesting measure against internal condensation is to clean all the internal glass surfaces thoroughly. I used to apply a product from Autoglym, "glass polish", "glass cleaner" or something like that, with good results.

    It did such a good job of preventing condensation that when I was with my girlfriend waiting for ... o, well, you can guess what (didn't) happen.

    Never had this problem either... replace pollen filter clean out the water drain hole below the filter & run the aircon on recirc with the heat up to help dry the moisture from the inside of the motor... hth

    Ive been getting a lot of mist on the inside, replaced the pollen filter and hey presto. Only takes 5 mins mate, no tools required and mine was £10.75 from the dealers.

    Also, apparently - rubber mats cause a similar pro by holding water ??
