    03 wrx sedan fogging up windows??

    DOES ANYONE ELSE IN THIS COLD WEATHER HAVE THIS PROBLEM?

    ill have the defrost on high doesnt matter recirc or fresh air, but my damn windows always fog up? i can minimize it by cracking the front windows alil bit but its too cold to be running around like that....put the mode on vents or bilevel and OMG instant cant see!!

    It's actually very common, just turn your a/c on when running your heater. That will remove the moisture from the ambient air and will effectively remove the fog, it works on mine.

    Also turn off the "Recirculate" button while you're having fog problems.

    Not a problem here in New Mexico. It was in more humid climates.

    I thought the AC compressor turns on when you have it set to defrost ?

    It cycles, yeah, but only when on defrost.

    Echoing others in here, make sure it's not set to recirculate, and put it to defrost so it's actually blowing on your windshield and up near the windows which will also manage the A/C portion of it as well. Robs power and gas mileage, but that's better than not being able to see.

    My ac compressor was removed and replaced but not hooked up, o ring issue and waiting to get a new one. But defrost still works great on my car!

    Yeah, the a/c does kick on when you turn it to defrost, but I like to have some air going downward to my legs too. So I just turn on the a/c and the problem goes away, so it doesn't have to be on defrost to work is all I'm saying. How did it work out for you?
