Hello guys
After using the A/C climate control,after turning it off the car steams up even it i turn the system off, I have to put the A/C back on to clear the car.
Could it be pollen filter related?
If not any ideas..

I hope this doesn’t sound too glib, but unless you’ve made a typo you’ve basically wrote “when I turn off the thing that stops the car steaming up, the car steams up”. So, um, what’s your question again? :lol:

Think of the physics; one or more bodies in an air tight, enclosed space, exhaling moisture onto a cold glass surface. Without any external influence, you are going to get condensation form on the inside of the windows.

It has only started doing this,this weekend.I have had the car 2.5 years it hasn't steamed up.
Even with the sun roof open(in the up position with the blind back) it steams up.

That's why i'm thinking pollen filter.

Is there any moisture in the cabin eg damp mats/foot wells which can cause the condensation?
