Re: Serious Condensation

There could be a small leak from the heater matrix which would cause condensation. Check the coolant level and monitor it to make sure it's not dropping. That said you only need a small leak to cause a lot of condensation so the coolant level may not change much.

Check the carpets around the centre console / bulkhead this by using a piece of kitchen roll pressed onto the carpet as this will show if it's wet better than feeling with your hand.

Any strange smells from the heater....often like a sort of curry smell?

If the car lives outside overnight you can get condensation on the inside in cold damp weather, especially if the car has sat in the sunshine all day.
