Hi Gerard;

    The most common cause of interior condensation and misting is a detached
or broken "assist spring" on the recirculation flap located in the passenger
footwell. This results in continually recirculating air and no or little
fresh air makeup. The fix has been written up several times in the past few
months, so it should be in the archives.
