Check the pollen filter, scuttle drain and the vents in the boot (in the bottom of the side cubby hole on a saloon and and the rear of the spare wheel well on an estate)

if you have alot of junk in that boot cubby space then that stops it working too!
best thing to do is to keep the fan on number 1 on the windscreen- thats what i do and it keeps the air circulating... mine steams up easy as anything without the fan on but i breath very heavily im told haha!

Might have to look at this idea you never know.

If I was to get a new filter which one would I need? 2 types from what Ive heard.

Unforunately I dont have an eco button but a circulate button and twist dials  Cry

I have checked the carpets, and the rear footwells are dry.

Maybe a good idea but constant blowing on the screen will put a film over it which will attract moisture and thus 'mist up'  Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided

Think I sorted mine, changed pollen filter, checked vents in boot, all fine, then washed car and found about a gallon of water in the scuttle, the rubber tube was blocked solid, cleaned it out and woopee seems to be ok now Grin

I find that if I don't keep the window clean it mists up easily. As my window gets more dirt on it I can use the eco button less and less!
