We are having trouble with moisture on the inside of the windscreen. Its so bad that the inside of the screen freezes. It drips down from the top of the windscreen when it starts to thaw. Also get moisture inside the side light covers on the front of the car.

When we start to drive the waters streams down onto the top of the dashboard.

Anyone else had this. !!!!!!!!!!!!!Edited by: garyd

That's not right, the way you describe, it sounds more than just condensation, sounds more like the windscreen hasnt selaed properly allowing water in. Take it back to you dealer to check it out.

As above or you need to set the climate system to use air from outside the car rather than recirc the air within.

If you leave anything damp in the car you will get moisture on the window, also if your mats or carpets are damp you might find the inside of the windscreen could ice up. Doesnt matter what car, it happens in them all.

Use the fresh air option for the heaters, then before you get out and leave the car for a night, turn it to recirc, see if that helps.

Have checked all of this its like it again this morning.
Air is set to outside, AC is off so no moisture from there.

The whole screen is frozen on the inside.

Hubby thought this was a fault with the Aygo until he realised he was only using it after playing football (sweaty) or in the snow. Even the small amount of snow you bring into a car on your feet will become moisture in the air and eventually condense and freeze on the coldest surface - the windscreen.

Its just unusually cold at the moment, nothing you can do, mines been freezing on the inside. Wouldnt matter if you owned a £300000 Rolls royce, the windows going to ice up when the temperatures this low.

Try it with the AC ON, AC acts as a dehumidifier, so helps to suck moisture out of the car.

And Silverjuke youve hit the nail on the head.

Use the ac to dry the air out.
When you park up open the windows and let the warm air escape.
Just be sure the floor and mats are dry. If you find water under the fitted carpet get the dealers to check.

Thanks guys perhaps it was that, never had in on my other car though.

So that leaves the moisture inside the side light covers on the wings

There's something about the side lights n moisture in a previous thread - there's a note about it in the manual apparently. Again, it's extreme weather that we're having so not things that we're used to !
