Windshield Fogging?

When driving at night top down, does anyone have a problem with fogging on the inside of the windshield? I turn on the defogger, and try different temps and fan speeds and the best I can get is the lower portion clear and the fog dancing around the top.... very distracting... might just need to clean the windshield though...

This just doesn't sound right to me. Fogging with the top down?? Isn't fogging due to different internal/external temps? Try NOT using the defroster vents at all, you might be creating your own problem somehow.

This sounds like moisture coming out of your vents or something. I've had a car completley fog the windshield when I turned on the vents.

Clean your windshield really good. If it happens again, see if it leaves a film on your windshield. I think if it does leave a greasy film then you may have a heater core leak. If not you probley have mostiure in your vents. Could be from leaving top down and due getting in or possibley a water leak around the firewall. Thats all I can think of.

I haven't tried it, but just last week I heard that turning on the a/c full blast will get rid of fog/condensation faster than any defrost setting.

I know I need to clean the inside of my windshield and am hoping that is the issue. I have tried everything from no air, to full air and the best I get is the dancing fog on the top half of the glass... will clean windshield, and retest....

Its probley the fresh air vent that is blowing on your window. There is moisture somewhere. It probley only happens when you are driving, right? Thats what has happened to me.
