ied the hosepipe around the windscreen pollen filter and its drain were checked by taunton ford this made no difference at all.have tried the hosepipe around the windscreen but could not see any water coming in anywhere.Any other ideas would be very welcome as the damp in the car is causing a lot of condensation which is currently freezing every night.
