Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
Whenever it is cold outside my car has excessive condensation on all windows. I have checked to make sure it is not recirculating air. The only way to clear even the windshield is to run the defrost at high heat. I believe there is a clogged drain tube because in the summer there is no water draining when the air conditioner is on, but no one seems to know the location of the drain.
I have the same problem and this was due to the air supply under the bonnet of the car. You have to release the plasticcover just below the screenwipers pull out the airfilter (it is a bit narrow so be carefull with your hand). Behind the airfilter there is a flap. In my case this flap is down, which cloes the airstream. OPen this flap by moving it upwards and lock it there with tape or something and the problem is solved. The only thing is that you can not close the air inlet with the button on your dashboard, but at least the major problem is solved.

I have the same fogging problem and after 3 attempts by our local dealer I took it to my local mechanic. He found somewhere on the internet that there is a "mixing box" under the dash that has small air vent motors that were said to be the issue. Has anyone repaired this item and did it fix the fogging?

Ask dealer/service person for location of drain. Many times this is on the engine firewall even with lower part of heater.AC housing. Also if car was undercoated this drain may be covered over.
