steamed up passenger window + wet road + low lighting + high kerb = boink to the left hand side skirt.

no visible damage, but on the way home the end cap has managed to fall off somewhere (could be anywhere over a 15 mile distance of various roads).

end cap i understand is only available with a new skirt.

sux to be orcomma :( sad times

That's a jacking point cover, not an end cap.

Funny, with my 'poverty spec' Zetec-S (now with added cruise control I might add!) I can turn on the air con and the windows demist almost instantly ;)

does anyone else find that the windows mist up if they go along with the air recirculation turned on, but not if its turned off? irritating if you've got a dirty lorry in front of you coughing smells into your car and you want to stop them...

The recirculation obviously shuts the external vents and just moves the air inside the car around again.

I know it's good for stopping smells but it also doesn't allow moisture from your breath to escape either.

Could bite the bullet and run air conditioning for short bursts, that will remove the condensation from the air.

You could alternatively try Climair vents on your windows, you can crack the windows open a little bit and still avoid smells coming in as the air movement over them draws air out of the car rather than blasting it in, also stops water run off and !Removed! ends blowing back into your lap :blink:

I'll be honest, I've never tried! Was it an option/standard on another version? Ghia/Titanium...?
