Hi Guys

I did a quick search on Condensation and could not find anything, so apologies if there are already threads on this. I have a 02 Futura Wagon which has been pretty good for my first car. Except I have a problem which is actually really dangerous, when I park my car and come back after a couple of hours the whole car is full of condensation, it is so bad. It takes ages to dissipate. To give you an example of how bad it is, imagine two people going at it on a freezing day in the back seat.

It is very annoying because I have to sit around for about 10 minutes waiting for it to go away with the air con on max.

A couple of months ago I had a problem where if it rained heavily the drivers seat and right hand passengers seat would fill with about 3cm of water. It hasn't happened for about 6 months even in this terrible weather. I presumed it was a broken seal somewhere, but have been unable to locate it.

Any advice would be appreciated

Cheers

Adam

How does one roll the carpet back?

Do I run a box cutter or something along the seems or is there a easier way?

Sorry, im not very mechanically minded :|

Nah bud don't cut it. Remove the kick pannels. Plastic bit neer your feet. And the plastic strip along the door that has 3 screws in it and you can roll it back.

hi
had the same prob with my EF. check ur air con water outlet, could be blocked blocked,
I took my whole dash apart to find the leak.
the outlet is located right under the heater fan, could be easily seen if the car is on hoist.

try finding the hose for heater it is right above it,
sometimes gets covered by the carpet on outside,

see if thats the prob

need any tips on taking dash or carpet / seats out let me know
