Re: Scuttle drains

We are helping..honest.

You have a damp car.
If you didn't, it would not mist up.
Normal to mist a little on cold mornings but if bad enough to form ice it's damp.

Doesn't matter how the damp got in, it's the same issue and remedies. Could be cos you often get in with full load of passengers and all in wet coats dripping on floor.
You breathe and cause condensation. That has to go somewhere.
Could be damp in the boot you haven't noticed.
Or past door seals or with a badly sealed roof aerial.
If it's not the obvious places like scuttle drains, you need to start looking elsewhere or think on your driving conditionssettings to see if that is causing it.

Anywhere water can get in it will. Once in, you have condensation and have to dry it out.
In the winter that's difficult as it doesn't evaporate easily, Key is circulation.
