Now Autumn's here it's brought some nasties with it, one being condensation on the front widnscreen of my C1. It was so wet this morning it took 6 sheets of thick kitchen roll to dry the screen. I put the fan on full and the A/C was on, but took a good 10-15mins to clear it, hence the kitchen roll.

I had new door seals on all 4 doors back in the summer and also the rear break light in the spoiler sealed properly. That seemed to stop the water getting into the car when it rained, but there were still drops of water on the outer edge of the door seal on the bodywork. So am I wondering if the doors still leak.

Before I rant and rave at the dealer about the doors leaking still, as this is my first winter with this car does anyone else have the same problem and if so, is it the doors still allowing some water into the car causing the condensation or is something else?

I have only had one other car that did this and it was about 40yrs ago and can't for the life of me remember what caused it in that vehicle.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Could it be the aerial rubber? Ask because mine was leaking in the Summer, the screen was wet.

Possibly a useless tip but did see this suggested on another car forum. They suggested making sure the heater was not directed to screen when you leave the car at night. Heat from the engine causing the screen to mist up as the glass cools.

It's a stopgap and not actually fixing the underlying issue but a pack or two of dehumidifier "crystals" that come in fabric pouches stuck on the dash stops it fogging up on the inside. Microwave once a week to "recharge" them.
