    Really bad Steamy Windows!

    Before I take the wife's A4 Cab in to the dealers next week I thought I would check we are not missing something obvious.

    After about fifteen minutes of driving when around freezing point and after using the demist setting and then changing to just screen heat the car suddenly steams up all the windows. It is bad enough to be really dangerous as the only clear part is the very centre section of the windscreen, all side windows and the sides of the screen are unuseable.

    I am assuming that the aircon is failing, but has anyone had a similar problem or are we missing a trick?

    Car is 08 reg 3.0tdi.
    Thanks
    Nick

    Sounds like it's stuck on recycle. Probably just a motor or linkage that's failed or stuck.

    Before you take it to the dealer - I'd check your pollen filter - sounds like it could be blocked up which can cause misting issues!

    It's located in a clipped housing, top right of the engine bay tucked under the windscreen - and may be behind a clip out panel.
