Angry Dam windows!

I am getting tired of my windows fogging up and leaving a film on the windows. Does this happen to anyone else? If so any way to provent it.

Thanks,
Mad Max - MY00

Same here. And the dash getting dusty 2 minutes after you clean it. *shrug* Maybe they invented magnetic plastics?

Flip the lever on your AC control so that it is coming in from outside instead of recycling inside.

I got a small bottle of "fog off", this spray on liquid which me and the fellas use to treat our masks when we go paintballing, and it's working damn well on the scoob!!

When I worked for BWM; they touted the fact that they a used a special process for manufacturing the plastic pieces for their interiors that wouldn't fog the inside glass. So, I've always assumed that was what was happening with my car. But; can't say for certain.

Listen to Blaster!

Honda even addresses this problem in their owners manual info and they tell you just what Blaster said.

No I don't and never have owned a Honda...I just know.

Mine is pulling air from outside and still doing it. Though mainly it only does it when I don't have any air going (and sometimes with the windows open, just later at night during the start of dew forming around).

I always leave the fresh air control open the average humitity here is around 12 - 20%; I know the crap on my windows is chemical fog. Which will, in turn, make humitity fogging worse; if you live in a humid area.

Mine fogs over all the time to and I ALWAYS leave it on the outside air position. The best way to handle it is to periodically turn the defrost (heat of course) on full blast for 20 seconds. That'll clear it up for quite a while. The worst I've seen is it refogging every 10 minutes. Cracking the windows doesn't help. A/C doesn't help either. An open sunroof helps a little, but not very much.

The reason is that the cabin inside the Prezy is very tightly sealed. You'd have to crack the moon roof to let the air flow out quicker from the vents. Try driving with your vents on Fresh and with the fan off and all the windows and moon roof closed. Feel the air flowing from the vent. not much air flowing in, huh?

Now open the moon roof - feel a surge of air coming from the vents now. Big difference.

The Prezy is tightly sealed hence the breathing will leave a film on teh windows.

Actually you should use the A/C versus the heat to get fog off your windows. I believe the concept behind A/C is to remove the humidity from the air and it'll clear up your windows before you can even get the heat to be warm. Try it, you'd be amazed.
