Advice please – car misting up.
Clean the inside of the windows. Dirty windows steam up much more readily than clean windows.
Buy some Fog X stuff from Halfords for a couple of quid and apply it. Works a treat. It can also be used to stop sun glasses and goggles from steaming up. Hell, I even apply it to the mirrors in the bathroom so they dont steam up after a shower.Posted 8 years agorolfharrisMember
Anyone know what's best for this on older cars (no Aircon in Doris the Honda).
Every morning I go to her and the windows are dripping wet on the inside, then mist up a lot. This only started happening after I left some soggy kit in there for 2 days, but I've had the windows down for over 2 hours of driving and it's still moist in there.Posted 8 years agoGaVgAsMember
What year is the Focus? Some earlier models had the pollen filter under the front wiper trim/scuttle,If not resealed properly they would leak water into the footwell causing misting troubles.
Is the rear wiper wash working? The pipe runs down the ns front lower sill of the car and i have seen these burst or come adrift near the passenger footwell.
Has the car had any accident repairs done? Any badly fitting doors/seals/grommets will give water ingress/misting problems,as suggested above unusually wet carpets would be a possible result.
If the heater matrix has gone (higher mileage) you would notice a srong smell (coolant)A drop at the coolant level resevoir,and poor heating,Its common in engines with the wrong spec coolant corrosion Inhibitors added.Posted 8 years agospeaker2animalsSubscriber
If the car has had the windscreen replaced it may be a faulty seal. I know a couple people who's car was co
promised once this was done. You're stuffed too as it's one of those faults that are so hard to correct.
Maybe take all carpets out and take in house to dry.
Also some of the holes that penetrate the cabin should be sealed but sometimes aren't

My wife has a focus estate, no probs yet. My brother in law has a mondeo and water leaks in through the rear door. Its a well known problem. There is a panel inside the door that moves and the water coming in past the seals on the glass runs down and comes in by the inside trim panel. The rear well then fills up and it eventually runs into the front. The rear doors have to be striped and the panel put back in place. Its a real fiddle but its the only way to sort it.Posted 8 years ago
