Customer Question

I have a 04 peugeot 307 sw se 1.6hdi, my aircon does not demist the windows around the car as it use to. Had it re-gassed made no difference. I have heard about the repair kit for the flap system but according to my local Peugeot dealer my car doesn't have this system and there is no kit available for this problem?? Can you offer any sollution please. At Peugeot garages £79 per hour very reluctant to put it in for checking.

I'd start by replacing the pollen filter as these can become clogged and limit the airflow so reducing the system effectivness also check inside the filter box for any signs of moisture as if the drain holes are blocked then you'll have a lot of dmap air coming into the system which the AC will struggle to completly dry

let me know what you find

Sorry for not replying but have been away. The filter has already been changed and the drain holes checked but I still have the problem. This problem has been ongoing for some time and has cost me enough money for me to feel that I will have to live with the problem. My reason for contacting you was to see if you could shed any light on it different from what I have already been told. I do not feel like persuing this problem any further and therefore feel that I should not incurr any cost but thank you anyway.

one other thing to test is to ensure that the air re-circulation system is drawing in fresh air from outside and not drawing from the footwell as this can lead to moisture build up.
