Re: Rapid misting up

Post by Flyingwilko » Fri Jan 01, 2021 9:42 pm

I’ve had this problem since I purchased my car over 2 years ago. Seems to occur whenever outside air temp
Is below about 5 degrees. Temperature drops even just a degree and it’s almost instantaneous. Was so severe I returned to the dealer who checked the entire car for a leak etc, found nothing. Happened again and in their advice called out Jag assistance (RAC) who did same again.

Can’t help but feel it’s a design flaw or sensor flaw that allows the humidity to ride in the climate control output. For it to suddenly happen with no other ‘variables’ seems to point that way.

Either way it takes an absolutely age for it to clear. I’ve tried all the ‘tricks’ suggested before to no avail.

All a bit a British Leyland really!

I have had no misting at all even with a couple of wet dogs in the car and me wet through walking them. I always have the aircon on to keep the air dry.

It’s a strange one. It doesn’t tend to happened immediately, I find it happens some time into the journey abs it’s almost instantaneous but doesn’t seem to be related to the obvious. It’s like suddenly the car emits humid air.

Have you had the aircon checked and the pollen filter?

I would second the advice to get air con checked- if you dont trust the dealer, Kwik fit will pressure check and recharge for a fixed fee. Air con doesnt just cool air, it dehumidifies it, hence it clears the screen in winter very quickly, if its working, of course.

Put the aircon on in the garage today prior to a quick trip to B+Q. Car actually steamed up while in the garage, was ok while driving, and cleared fully on the return. May need to get the aircon looked at if it continues. I think the pollen filter was changed at the 2 year service.

Happened again today after 15 minutes driving and a 30 minute precon, I have now contacted the dealer for advice. Perfectly ok on the commute into work this morning in same temperature. My bets are on something to do with the aircon.

Have you checked the air quality settings? That determines the amount of fresh air coming into the car. A low amount of fresh air will cause condensation as the moisture levels rise

It's behaved itself the last 2 days after a threat of a holiday at the dealer.

Great 1.5 hour drive to work today with my #jaguar #ipace completely fogged up. Despite being preconditioned and A/C on max the whole way it never cleared.
