Thread: Fogging

  1. #1

    Fogging

    Does anyone else's car fog up like crazy? Is it just the weather?

    My headlights are even fogging! It's annoying!

    Also unrelated, did your cars come with a frunk cargo net?

    Cars came with frunk cargo net.

    Both my cars (the ICE and the S) fogged up pretty bad yesterday. Then again, it was foggy out too.

    I got the front net, but no license plate frame. Yes though, my windows fog up a LOT.

    Do you have aircon on when getting this fogging?

    No aircon.

    My DS seems to think I shouldn't be getting a Frunk cargo net. I'll email Tesla.

    I'll take some pictures. The fogged headlights don't look great. I thought headlights are sealed. The are fogged from the inside. As does my rear view camera, gets really wet too. Rain-X?

    If your windows are fogging in your temperate climates, I am not encouraged as to how it will be in winter... Not much worse than windows covered with frozen water vapor on the inside of the car, especially if it occurs despite using the ventilation system / A/C.

    Anemic ventilation / defrosting ability would be one of the few things that would make me consider cancelling my reservation...

    Say it ain't so!

    The defrosters work great, but the headlights fogging on the inside is real problem!

    The chemicals coming from the new materials are placing a coating upon the windows that absorbs moisture and fogs up. Paper towels and a good glass cleaner should help quite a bit. I noticed the fogging at about 600 miles or so and it fogs much less if you keep the inside of the glass clean.

    Yes, in about 45 deg weather. If I tap the rear defroster all is well, but with that unlit and "Auto" for all the other Climate Control it fogs up. Also, when it's 40-50 the auto fan speed isn't fast enough to keep me warm.
