Anyone know how to fix a windshield that won't de-fog? Got the front defroster on, AC, no recirc, and still it never clears. Goes away briefly with wipers and then comes back. I assume it's something on the outside, any tips on what'll clear it?

You gotta blast the heat.

Super uncomfortable, but if you can't take the moisture out of the air you can at least equalize the inside and outside temperature which will stop the condensation.

Do you use rain-x? I had terrible fogging on my mk6 after using it. It was only a problem at night with really wet/humid conditions. 0 problems since switching to aquapel.

Can't remember how I counter-held mine at home, but at work I'd be looking for the shittiest 10mm in the drawer and a grinder with a 36 grit disk. Or my knipex 125 pliers wrench, they have some pretty gdang thin jaws.
