you prob have a leak somewhere and the moisture you are seeing is the resulting condensation.

check your carpets are not damp

hehe, I don't need a themometer in my car. I know it's bloody freezing when I get in the car in the morning and the insides of the windows are frozen and there's frost on the clocks and the steering wheel!

Speaking of this I noticed your car had a bit of condensation in it yesterday when I parked next to you in Argos. My windscreen did the same when I hadn't driven it for about a week but hasn't done it since. Must just be one of those weird MK3 things.

all old VW`s have a habit of doing this i reckon the door membrane is the culprit, even if your carpets are dry moisture will always creep in

sometimes the drains near the windscreen can get blocked and over flow, might be worth checking those under the scuttle panel.

Haha... Razz

It's just simply cos the inside is damp, and is of very slight different temperature compared to the ouside. Like the opposite principle of the outside of a glass of beer in summer... That's all my physics right infront of you there.

I've got it cos my pass. carpet is still damp after the fan mis-haps. Had to happen in this weather. Quite possibly the shitest drying weather ever.
