demist

  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Girls n Boys, My fiancée has a 51 plate Guiletta that she bought from her sister, so 2 owners from new, a 1.6 TD. Her issue is that the rear windscreen wiper has a mind of its own, it hardly ever parks in the same place, sometimes it won’t switch off and you have to stop the car and remove...

    Hi all noticed my heated o/s wing mirror is not demisting. Mirror adjustment is working fine. Any suggestions welcome thanks.

    I've not got my Alfa 156 on the road yet as I need to sell my current car so I've been having a play with it on the drive. It's an 05 facelift model. When I press the front window demist button nothing happens. I read in the owners manual that the engine needs to warm up first. I just tried it...

    My Gt 2004 has developed a partial malfunction, only 30% of the rear window demists, leaving a large area clouded. Indie claims that the element is fractured. Seems like another big bill ???

    I noticed today that the rear screen heater takes ages to clear the mist. My drive to work is only 10-15 minutes, or about 7 miles. But it can't get it demised in that time. I can see the lines start clearing straight away, but then takes ages to clear the gaps! Normal or knackered? It's a 156...

    I just wonder if any one else has noticed something characteristic about the way the instant demist works specifically on the windscreen. I have noticed before that when selected, the blower takes some time to spin up. Just lately though during the icy weather I can turn it on when leaving the...

    First winter with a 156. VERY slow to de-mist front screen. Would a new cabin filter help ? if so where is it located ? Many thanks

    Still getting to know my car. Most stuff works except for the heated rear screen, low brake fluid warning and cigarette lighter. (BTW its a 1972 2ltr GTV). First how does the lighter work its got power and an earth but cant seem to figure it out. It doesnt push in and then you pull it out like...

    My demist is driving me up the wall. When it's switched on the heater goes to full temp and full power to the fan. I can adjust the fan, but not the temp, which seems a bit round the wrong way. Am I doing something wrong, missing something? Thanks in anticipation FF the sweaty blob :confused:

    Hi all, the weather is getting better and I am going to have a day fiddlign with the 156. The rear demister isnt working on my car as are the heated mirrors. The fuse is intact AND I can hear clicking in the relay behind the fuse box when the button is depressed. Is this relay possibly...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have a quick question. When I get into the car, because of the cold temperature outside and my body's temperature in the car, the windscreen is getting misty. So I use the de-mist button (if that's how it's called) to get the windscreen cleared. While the car is cold, this really...

    Me and the girlfriend were heading up to Crail the other day and the windows were steaming up with the weather outside..no not what you think!! lol I went to press the front and read windows demisters and found the A/C coming on everytime I pressed them When I pressed the AC off the demister...

    Hi, Dual Climate Control system, press button to direct air to windscreen (either one press button automatic, or manual direct air to screen), and air only goes to face level vents. Any ideas? Only a year old so under warranty, but I haven't got time to drop it off. Makes driving with a foggy...

    please help-the heater/air conditioning works except it wont blow hot air from demisting vent; i have no idea why as i cannot see how this vent could get blocked. i dont think its the switch as everthing else works fine any suggesttions welcome
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Now that we have hit minus temperatures, I am finding that my A/C does not demist like it does in warmer temps. Does the A/C system have a limiter for operation, like my wife's Picasso? In her car the A/C doesn't work at +3 Degrees and below, which IMHO is not good. I appreciate that...
  16. Alfa 164 & 166
    Whilst I get my cd changer fitted:( , I am having to listen to radio, noticed recently that when I put on the rear screen demist, I get large amount of interference. Does anyone know if there is a suppressor or something that may need changing ?
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This is now the third car I have owned with air-con, however all of them had the same problem. The only way I can de-mist the windows and have them remain clear is to have the air-con running, otherwise you have to have full fan speed, and full heat and even then it isn't perfect! I don't get...
  18. Alfa 155
    I strange thing happend the other day when i put my rear screen de-mist on, the radio stopped working in that there was no reception. I know the arial is built in to the rear screen de-mist but why should it stop the signals? Cheers
