"New" Fiat Bravo air con problem
I have posted on the Fiat forum but no ideas have come up....
Basically, 2007 Bravo Sport with automatic climate control (just like the Alfa one).
3 years with no issues then all of a sudden the windows have started to badly mist up in cold weather. The compressor doesnt engage under about 3C as it shouldnt. When this compressor is off though, the misting up is atrocious, like needing to lower windows when coming up to a junction.
The system has been re gassed, new pollen filter fitted and Fiat have given the system a once over, said it was fine. Carpets are dry, footwells are dry, spare wheel well is dry. Air recirc is off.
Today, temp was above 3C and compressor was working, windows clear. Temp then dropped to 2.5C and compressor went off (again, as expected). The car misted up completely in around 30 seconds, (all but the windscreen, and even then had a 3 inch border of mist around the edges of that).
Any ideas anyone, Im at tethers end! Its bordering on dangerous.
