Default Inside cabin windshield fog...

This might be a little off-topic, but it's in regards to my WRX..

When I turn my car off and if I have the A/C blower knob set all the way to the right, the window defogger, i'll come out to my car in the morning and have this nice pretty good sized fog spot on the INSIDE of my front windshield.

How is this happening? Evaporating through the air vents and causing it to dew up on the window? It's just like the dew on the outside of your car in the morning, but on the inside of the car, it's driving me nuts.. leaves a nasty dirty spot where the water is on the windshield.. anybody else experiencing this?

Default check your manual

It sounds like condensation on the AC cooling core, is evaporating when you park and re-condensing on the cool windows.

You might want to check what vent setting you have been using, there is a caution in the manual about using the recirculation setting and window fogging.

If you use the outside air setting it is not so likely to fog. Not sure if that will eliminate the issue or not. I've seen a similar thing happen in cold damp weather from defrosters when you first turn them on. Not a real problem but can be irritating.

You might be able to get rid of it by shutting the AC off a couple blocks before you park the car so the condensation inside the AC ducts has a chance to clear before you park the car.

You're right it only happens when I have it on re-circ... thanks!
