Windscreen fogs up when starting first thing in the morning. I've tried the controls in every position and it's always the same. Any ideas? My colleagues have the same problem, (we have 3 identical cars.

Mine does the same, asked in the local wilco motor factors store and they say its due to the cabin filter being old and not changed enough - apparently the pollen clogs gets damp overnight and then fogs up the srceen when the demister is used !
Until filter change only use the demister after car has warmed a little bit and then should be ok.

Hi
Pollen filter is below/behind the glove box passenger side, take out box - fixings at each corner inside bottom, and then should see the rest, a bit of fascia has to come off below glove box i think as well, i've been told its a 45 min job including the walk to kettle and back.....

On saying that I've yet to do mine...

We spoke to Smiths Nissan and got the same info. Sounds like a job for the workshop guys.

Thanks

Hi

Workshop guys fitted pollen filters to our 3 X trails. No more misted screens so far. Thanks again. Craneman :bow:

On some cars, it might be an idea to make sure there is no slight dampness in that area of the cabin floor caused by heater entry duct drains becoming blocked with tree debris etc. In some types this results in rainwater accumulation leaking into cabin.
In my X-Trail, this misting does occasionally happen, but the aircon clears it pronto. The cabin filter gets replaced yearly.
IUTLS.

My brother has also encountered this fog thing on his X-trail's windscreen most of the time. So we decided to ask some friend who are also driving X-trail and they mentioned checking the acc cabin filter. When we check it, it was already full of dust and other dirty stuff plus small insects on it. Then my brother bought a new cabin filter at ebay and it was really easy to install. It only took my brother about 30 minutes to replace the filter.
