misting up

Mine does this too unless the aircon is also switched on. The heated air
is picking up moisture from somewhere which then condenses out on the
colder windows. The A/C gets rid of this excess moisture so no condensation.

Jeff,
This usually means that you have to much moisture in the car.
During the wet months you take it in on your shoes, clothes etc. If
you have a good warm run with one of the windows open a bit it will
disperse some of it.
You will also get misting because of the cold. When you get in
and it is cold your body heat and breath is enough to mist the
windows. If tou have AC putting this on to blow on the window clears
it in seconds, whether or not you have heat on.
Regards, Clive.

I'd just add: I get the same, and the a/c does clear it so long as the
outside temp is above about 3 deg C; below that the a/c doesn't cut in
(intentionally, to stop the evaporator icing up). Unfortunately
mornings at present seem to be below 3 deg C ...

Hi Jeff
I know its a pain in the ---- but has always happened .
Some times it seems that it is like a fog but inside the cruiser.
Yes its all to do with moisture in the cruiser. One thing I did find was to
check the rubber plugs in the rear wheel arches as with some of our
cruisers, water collects in there from the rear window seals and this on its
own can cause a lot of window misting.
I find at times its a real hazard trying to look out.
As has been siad if you open the window only a little it will clear but can
take ages depending on the sourse of the misting.
I find if I open the sunroof a litle this works best cause the moisture
rises up and out.
The biggest pain I have is with the windows working slowly or not at all in
this weather. Sure I put one window down to let it demist and it decided not
to go back up.
This has happened a few of my windows and I still do not have a cure for it.
Now this really drives me mad at times.

As others have said, it is down to moisture in the cabin.
You should have vents in the D pillars just behind the rear side
windows to vent the cabin, but it only works effectively if you are
drawing in fresh air through the heater - using the aircon that tends
to circulate the air in the cabin doesn't help.
Also, sometimes these vents can stick, so might be worth checking them
by removing the panel on the inside.
Yes, you can speed the process up by opening a front window to get more
air through, or open a rear window to let more air out.
When I have wet dogs in the boot I always drive with one of the rear
side windows open which works a treat, but obviously those of you with
Jap Imports or who have removed the side windows won't be able to do
that.
