hey iv got a new 09 plate ka zetec and was wondering if anyone else is having the same problems as me? the main fault is that the fan direction doesn't have an "all" position (like my fiesta). so when it is blowing windscreen the side windows steam up and vice versa. fortunatly i have a heated front screen but am forced to use it constanly to keep the windows clear and worried that overuse may burn out the elements in the mirrors. any hints or tips would be greatly apreciated
thats stoopid...bad Ford bad Ford!
Just another reason to hate the new Ka I suppose. Sorry, that's not very helpful - but I can't think of a solution if it doesn't let you direct the vents to the windscreen and passengers at the same time. You could try opening each window a bit, should stop them steaming up so quickly.
Mirror heaters come on with the rear demister, not the front, and they only stay on for half the time of the window (usually 12 mins for the window, 6 for the mirrors) ;) So no chance in "burning them out)

As for the design, blame Fiat, not Ford :P
regardless, blame ford for knowing about it and still going a long with it!
