My '98 Vectra, again

Discussion in 'Vectra' started by ßødincµs²°°°, Dec 20, 2006.

  1. With the winter comeback, the damp and cold Scottish weather is
    battering it...

    'tis a minor prob, but somewhat annoying: the rear window and the two
    little side ones are always very damp, must be a leak somewhere.
    With the temp going well below zero through the night, all that dampness
    freezes, and in the morning it takes 10 minutes to ease the ice off both
    sides of the windows... :)

    Where are the known weak spots for the hatchback version? What do I have
    to look for? Where? Roof window, gaskets, drainage...

    TIA

    if you have a sunroof
    check the drain tubes are clear down either side of the windscreen.
    sticksome wire right down them
    if not
    pollen filters are the prime holder of moisture
    take them out and replace them.
    they are on ebay very cheap

    Just a quick suggestion but is the heater set for fresh air and not
    recirculated?

    Thanks again Mike, I definitely need to buy a Haynes... and to buy you a
    beer! Do you have a PayPal account?

    Yup, never use it (albeit when stuck in enclosed spaces with engines
    running like tunnels, underground parking, etc...).
    Must be the drainage, any other suggestions (apart from the scrappy)?
