[A4] Fogging Windows...

No shortage of info on this topic...

As to some of the suggestions, as my parting shot I'll just offer  
that I have had the fogging occur with the Econ off and and Recric  
off.  I've definitely found that engaging those function makes the  
fogging worse.  As to the defrost, it does kill the fog, but just  
need to leave the fan on such an unholy high speed, I'd just say I  
hope there is a better solution.

Also know it only really happens when it's cold and raining or  
snowing.  Just cold, doesn't happen.  Add some snow or rain in the  
mix and the fog accumulates where there is less air circulation, and  
where the moisture runs on the outside of the car (i.e. sides and  
tops of windshield, top of front side windows...etc).

So who knows, looks it just may be a functionality issue with the car  
attributable to neither operator error or something broken.

Go figyah.
