This is bloody annoying me now first thing in a morning inside of my windscreen iced up I tried what everyone mentions vent to foot but I have to sit there for 10min at least before its safe to drive I have bought a de-umidifier put it behind drivers seat on floor and its done bugger all still got ice on inside I like the seat nice car to drive but I can't cope with winters like this in a car its annoying if I can't figure whats wrong won't be around to see next winter
there must be a gap/hole somewhere but don't know where anyone found a solution? is it worth me taking it to seat to look at or pointless
got stuck in preston for 25/30 minutes new years day... car had been there over night and when i went back to collect it had to scrape the ice off the inside AGAIN and then it just was like a mistfest!
So i was sat in a horrible carpark at around 11:30pm waiting for my car to sort itself out. oooh safe!
I'm also wondering wether to take it to Seat or not... because obviously by the time i turn up at the dealers the car would be totally drivable - so they obviously wouldn't be able to see the issue
Presumably the mist is being caused by the fact that the air in your car is damp, and then this is condensing onto the windscreen. To remove it at source you need to remove the damp from the car (easier said than done!)
I left mine running for 30 minutes with the heaters on full, then left it running for another 30 minutes with the windows 1/4 open.
This has seemed to work.
Although I've not been using it much recently!
Rang the dealers today about this after being in my car for 40 minutes before setting off for work today - it still wasn't really clear enough to drive then!..they said to book it in to check it out (and also service it) . They asked me to drop the car off tomorrow night so they have it for weds morning. I'll see what the outcome is!!!
one of three things i recon..
1)they wont be able to do anything as ''they can't see a problem''
2)they'll fix it
3)i'll walk away after with a brand new car instead as i can't goto a garage without getting a new'un!
Unfortunatley they don't have any courtesy cars available so i'll be stuck in preston :/ gah ..but i suppose it's great they've been able to fit me in so quick considering i only called today.
I think im still going to buy one of those moisture traps too..good idea.
You probably could!!!!
i really wish i was exaggerating too
erm average daily run from my house to the train station probably takes about 25/30 mins..(mainly motorway)
I have the heaters on full (high everything haha) until i can actually see a slight bit lol, then turn them completley off. I didn't used to bother doing anything after that, but Ive started cooling the car down before i get out too by opening the windows on the last leg of the journey.
But it's just as bad as always I'm doomed not to drive in the winter
Are the absorbent door seals the reason for the windows being stuck when it's below freezing.
Even when there's no ice on the window they refuse to move.
I take it the seal absorbs water and then freezes, stopping the window from moving.
Had to scrape the ice from the inside for the past couple of days.
Also yesterday I was unable to open the boot, rear doors were very difficult to open, then wouldn't close due to the handle getting stuck in the open position. Also the mirrors wouldn't fold out due to the ice.
I can only guess SEAT did their winter weather testing on a chilly Spanish evening one summer!
