If the recirculation light is on then no air is coming in from outside & you will get condensation issues!
This 100%

Only buttons illuminated on my climate control panel are AUTO & A/C

It's extremely rare I would ever use the recirculation button & then only to stop foul odour from entering the cabin.

I don't even use the dual zone function 馃ぃ

My next door neighbour is a vehicle Air Con engineer. I messaged him and he says turn the recirculation off in winter.

Thanks I'll give it a go
Yep, recirc on in cold weather makes it worse. Normally used if behind a smelly garbage truck or two stroke moped to avoid smell

I never use recirculation, all it does is mist up the car, I don't know why manufacturers still fit it (I know it's to help warm/cool the car quicker but does it really make that much of a difference)

I use it when stuck behind a stinky diesel as can鈥檛 stand that smell or when I can see smoke from vehicle in front as you don鈥檛 want to be breathing that in.

Yep turn it off,leave Aircon on auto if you can take it for a drive let the car heat up properly the air conditioning will hopefully clear it. We forgot and left dogs wet towels in the boot overnight had similar problem, cleaned it out and stuck dehumidifier in there for 20mins and it hasn't reoccurred. By leaving the aircon on auto it adjusts the temp you set it doesn't use any more fuel really it's miniscule,older cars yes but modern cars not really.

Thanks everyone.

Just had a call from the Service Department. They asked if the drive mode was set to Eco. It is and they said set it to Normal as Eco reduces power to the Air Con and it will not take out moisture in Eco.

Now set to Normal and a couple of cheap dehumidifiers under the front seats

i use it when driving in Suffolk on a stretch of the A11 as the stink from the pig farms at that part is awful.

Huey this time of year in the fields around us the farmers stockpile huge mounds of manure/dung,which steams like a volcano getting ready to erupt some as big as a country mansion. They pong now,even the crows steer clear,but wait till it goes into the muck spreader. Windows and doors kept shut as much as possible and every car/van I've had never managed to mask it completely.ps you packed.
