When I've had trouble with any of my cars misting up, I get a fan heater (That runs off the mains) and turn that on full with the windows wound down about 0.5" and leave it running for about 3 hours. The car heats up inside and any moisture will be forced out through the small gaps in the door windows. It's always done it for me.SpeedyV09 wrote:I have owned my car now for a year and every time the temperature inside the car is different from outside all the windows seem to fog up like crazy. Most people say to just recirculate the air which I do. But also to leave the Air conditioning on so it blows cold air - It's to damn cold outside to do that. I leave the (A/C) button on but still keeps fogging up every time I drive.
Does anyone have any suggestions/solutions/ideas why this keeps happening.
+ that rain X anti fog is more hassle then it's worth, streaking and hazing seems to almost be worse then the fogged up windows in a way.
So could this be covered by the bumper to bumper warranty?OTDave wrote:I am new to this forum and I saw this posting about Versa windows fogging up. I just wanted to share my experience on how I fixed it.
I have been having fogging problem since the first day I got my Versa SL. I have been suspecting there is an issue with either the plastic moisture barrier in the doors or the flow through air vents at the back of the car for the longest time. I have checked the vents at the back when I added the backup sensors and they are fine. Just recently, I decided to upgrade the speakers and took all the door panels off to check for the moisture barriers. As expected, none of the barriers in all 4 doors were done properly. All the plastic barriers were detected at multiple locations leaving big gaps between the plastic and the door. I am not going to bore people with the details on why. It got something to do with the way the doors are designed and shaped. The bottom line, unless the factory wait until the caulking glue they used on the barrier is totally dried before they put the inside door panel on, the barrier will be detected at multiple locations. I replaced all the moisture barriers with generic dynamat type of materials and my fogging problem is gone since then.
So, check the moisture barrier in the doors.
