    BrrrrrrrÂ…

    The rear side windows in my Avant have the demister matrix in, but have never come on. Anyone know why that might be?

    The back screen and mirrors work fine.

    They are the antennas for the radio

    Brilliant. Do I get a prize for ignorance?

    I thought it was an odd place for a demister. Figured it was for if you had a dog that breathed heavily while in the boot or something.

    How come my radio reception is detrimentally affected by the rear demist being on then?

    no prizes i'm afraid, its quite a common mistake though.

    as for your radio reception it could be because the antenna joints at the bottom of the window are cracked so there affected by the demister or it could be a problem with the radio booster.

    No idea! It's pretty much night time all the time at the moment so black windows wouldn't make much difference.

    Brilliant - for once using the search function has returned a perfect thread for my question! I was also wandering this after using the car last week! I also thought that they were broken demisters and thought that I had to work out how to fix them so good news that they are in fact the radio aerial, which I previously have wondered the location of!
