Re: Scuttle drains

Hi. Some steaming up can be normal in winter. You drive around in the day with the heater on. Your breath and body add moisture to the air. Even if you are ventilating with full fresh air, the warmer day time air is holding more moisture than the colder night time air can support. Comes the cold night, the car cools down, the air cannot hold the day time pick up of moisture and hence condensation. This normal situation can be aggravated by a water leak which you are convinced you have not got or extreme cooling of the car at night. As you have said that it actually ices up internally I suspect that your car is exposed to very chilling conditions when parked overnight.
