Question about Cars & Trucks
I have trouble with the car intrior misting up all the time & even having the screen blower on continually it does not clear fully. I also have to use the heated rear screen frequently. A couple of friends have mentioned the pollen filter & also the aircon could need re gassing
The ac runs in defrost mode to help dry the air blowing on the windshield. The cabin has too much moisture in the air.
You need fresh outside air and it needs to be dried by the ac to work correctly. So if the cabin air filter is dirty you would not get enough fresh air.

I have recently acquired a 53 reg (2004) VW Passat TDI and have the same misting problem. However, my solution was simpler. There is a well known design fault in older VW Passats where the drain holes in the plenum chamber get blocked. This causes rain water to collect and then when the outside temperature rises you end up with condensation/mist on the interior of the windows. In fact, VW did a recall on this not so long ago following a class action law suit in America.
My Passat has 2 drain holes. One under the battery and the other under the brake servo. You need to remove the battery. It is a fiddle to get to the drain hole under the brake servo but it is possible with a bit of fiddling. You just remove the rubber drains and clear the crud. An absolute rubbish design. If you don't do this then water can collect and spill into the electrics causing no end of problems.
I noticed on my car that the recall had been done (e.g., the rubber drain hole was not present under the battery) ... however, the morons had not bothered with the drain under the brake servo - presumably too difficult for them!! So even if the recall has been done the chances are the mechanics at VW have skimped on the job. Since I did this, my windows no longer mist up.
Hope that this helps. Duncan.

The blinker button (hazard lights 4 way blinking) which is also a relay, is broken. with time the tention on the metal contacts gets loose so the contact only happens sometimes. pop it out with a thin screwdriver and replace it, 15$ on ebay...

I use a "C" clamp & screw it in slowly. If need be, leave cap of reservoir, and/or crack open your bleeder screw. Bleed after install.

I would also have the system power flushed . The termostat on this cars can be a very expensive item to replace..probably 6 hrs of labor at $80.00 hr. The irony of all , the part cost is less than 30.00 dollars.Have it flushed for $100.00 to 150.00 dollars

Shut off your Volkswagen Passat before replacing a fuse. Find the fuse box on the driver's side of the car, under a plastic cover on dashboard to the left side, door open.
