Your aircon too cold? blowing directly from the vent in front of your dash to the windscreen?
Be not afraid of moving slowly. Be afraid only of standing still.

I believe so. The aircon is extremely cold esp on rainy weather. It took only few min to fog my whole damn windscreen. My aircon vent is not pointing directly on my windows.. but still get fog.

I heard about rainx, does it really helpes? I got very visible shampoo marks especially w/ fog. Is there anyway i can get ride of it too? Not sure whether does it came from outside or inside.. but it always happen when the fog cover my windscreen.

Beside rainx, anymore recommended windscreen polish/wash i can use external or internally?

TIA.

How old is your wiper blade? rubber deteriorate under UV, you may want to change your wiper blade.
Also Singapore humidity is high. If your aircon too cold, condensation will take place outside your glass.

Similarly, if you go to winter country where outside is colder than inside, than the condensation is inside the window glass.
Therefore must turn on aircon compressor to reduce the humidity but set at heater (red region) position to keep warm and select the button "blowing at your leg"

Hi, u can try changing your aircon mode to non circulating during rainy daily. The reason y it fog up is likely due to the cold air circulating within your car thus causing the fog.

Bingo! This the right answer. I believe this is what the manual says too.

===============

Er.....If u on your AC, the fogging wil go away.

If the fogging is outside, just use your wiper to clear it, cos if raining, u still need to use the wiper to clear the rain. Sometimes its very cold & humid outside so u get misting on the outside even when its not raining.

Not a problem as no harm wil come of it.

U can try a small amt of Armourall. The type used to wipe on the dash & plastic parts. It helps to prevent fogging on the inside glass. Even car wax can b lightly applied.

Check the setting of your air vents. Maybe got cold air blowing out fron the windscreen vents. Sometimes the adjuster not working properly.

last time my fren Chrysler Grand Voyager got this problem. I just place some cloth or mat to cover his windscreen vents & the problem solved. If he bring to the agent to fix it, prob cost $1K. sweatdrop.gif sweatdrop.gif sweatdrop.gif

Okay guys, i think i roughly know what causes the fog. My aircon was set to "MAX" instead of the default blow straight.

However, i'm unable to determine unless it starts pouring again. Thanks many MCFers for your help. wub.gif

With due respect, don't follow manual blindly and try to understand why the manual recommend these steps.
When in doubt, always go back to basic.
In this case physic.

For fog to form, the temperature, humidity, air pressure must meet at dew point.
Once we understand this concept, life get a lot easier when you travel the world.

just my humble opinion

I beg to differ. When u switch to non circulating, there will always be outside air coming in. So the air temp inside n outside the car will be the same, thus preventing condensation n fog.

I dun drive an avante but it works for my ride.

LOL... this has nothing to do with any wipers.

It's the difference between the outside temperature and cabin temperature that fog up your windows and windscreens. Your car should have an outside temperature reference displayed on your dash. Manually adjust the aircon temperature close to that reference but still slightly below it.

Your car also should have a demister aka windscreen heater. If you dunno what is that, check your user manual.

I want to be a nice person but....there are just too many people around who are not smart.
