Stick the Aircon on buddy , if you have already then maybe you need the Aircon topped up because it should be drying the air as well .

Also check your drain holes in the front scuttle, could be hey have become blocked and water is backing up

Aircon is on all the time & works ok.
I'll probably leave it until servicing time & get Wayne Gates to look at it.
Thanks for the answers.

I'd go with scuttle drains or heater drains.

Or pollen filter damp/wet.

You haven't attacked the engine bay with a pressure washer by chance?

Last Thursday there were two of us in it,it was raining but not heavily & the screen repeatedly kept misting.
This morning only me,heavy rain & the screen misted up only twice.Both trips 31 mile duration.

You have water collecting somewhere. Either in the heater drains, wet carpets, full scuttle drains. Find that you find your problem.

No smell.
Yesterday evening light rain it was misting up probably every two minutes.
Same time same trip today it was bucketing down & it didn't mist up once.
Terry at Wayne Gates is going to look at it next Thursday.

Maybe check your cabin/pollen filter? I neglected mine for so long and started to get a bad odour coming from the vents. If the problem is the cabin filter I get my parts (including my new filter) from Ultimate Styling

The other thing to check is cabin exit vents. If they are blocked no air will get in and that can also cause misting.
