Clearing The Windows And Keeping Them Clear!!!!!

Recommended Posts

My Fiesta 1.0 ecoboost zs - never clears.

The side windows in particular get steamed up so i can barely see!.

The front ones are also bad and unless you have the heater on setting 2 or more.. they just seem to be a pain.

Can anyone advice or tell me a technique into ensuring my windows are clear.

I absolute hate them keep steaming up!

cheers

I always leave my aircon on now, never have a problem with steaming up even on a low setting to keep the noise down.

Agreed on the aircon.

Also as you have climair/heko on your car try cracking the windows down a touch.

Went to the local car parts shop today and bought a bottle of liquid thats supposed to help keep your windows clear.. I'll try and let you know how it goes. Usually just use the quick clear window heater for the front and back but the side windows i have to put the window down to clear it.

you can use the cleaner you get for motorbike helmet visors, use it as glass cleaner internally.

Thanks for the replies.

I have already got wind deflectors which seem useless and only for cosmetics in my opinion.

i normally leave my windows open a little anyway when travelling, but especially when it rains they are a nightmare to clear.

I will try some of the tecnhiques used here in the next couple of days.

I tryed to put aircon on yesterday which seemed to work fairly well and effective.

Will do - I'll clean the windows and apply it today if I can.

Out of interest, were you the guy who did the st diffuser and tail pipe option? I'm sure I remember seeing that bronze car with it on from pictures on the forum, how much did it cost altogether?

Windscreen is just coated in water today.. Ill do it tomorrow :D

Keep toying with the idea of changing the diffuser but change my mind constantly. Bet it looks nice with the black diffuser... maybe even matte black would look okay.

Is your system set to re-circulate cabin air? The manual says prolonged recirculation of air can cause the windows to fog up and make them difficult to clear.

Vents set to windscreen, aircon on, no recirculation, windows cracked slightly and a microfibre cloth wiping in straight lines from bottom of the windscreen to the top to remove excess moisture.

Works for me just fine.

Don't use any cloths inpregnated with so-called 'demisting agents' as they just smear and make it worse.

recirculation - i may have the button pressed in.

I thought it was the clear button :rolleyes:

I have tryed aircon and its a lot better.

Will try other techniques in the up and coming weeks.
