2013 XF Portfolio Windscreen steaming up

Recommended Posts

Since Sept/Oct my windscreen has started to steam up on my 2013 XF Portfolio 3ltr diesel. When I try to clear it ( heating front windscreen and fan blowing) only the drivers side clears down. I have also noted that the aircon no longer works at tick over but does work after about 15mins driving. The air con system is fully charged and no known leaks. I can hear the compressor operating. Any ideas?

the aircon sounds like low gas or the fan is not running

could be some like a blend flap not working or if its stuck on recirc

also worth checking your pollen filter, seen so many where there blocked and limiting air flow

Hi Terry

Mine does the same. Today I tried just using the first button, next to the front window and rear window heater and turned off the window heaters when not needed. It was fine and I only had to keep the fan on 1.
