During recent cold spell,I was switching on defrost blower to clear windscreen but only cold air wasa blown onto screen.Is there a separate heater elelment for the defrost blower.If I left engine running,No aircon /blower on after approx. 10 mins engine warmed up but switching on blower still did not clear screen very well.Air Con was regassed just before Xmas.

Suggested Solution

On some cars there is a humidity sensor which when you switch onto demist screen it activates air con , if needed , to clear faster . Don't know if this is what is happening with your car .Had it on a few cars and know of a few friends who get annoyed with it when they notice air con on and switch same off .If you have a cabin filter , check that also as if needing changed can restrict air flow .Check engine temp o.k and not running cooler due to sticking thermostat which will affect heater ability to clear screen .
