Steamy rear window...



  Renault Clio Sport 182
Now the temp in the morning is dropping again, I have a strange thing happen when I accelerate. When I put my foot down to accelerate hard, the rear window steams up with condensation on the outside...why?? Anything to worry about??

But is it normal for the rear window to steam up like that. I never imagined it would condense on the outside of the rear window. Maybe it seems a stupid question but I was just curious.

Stick the rear heater on for a bit that should solve it.

the 182 blows gases directly towards the rear (instead downwards like the 172) and because of the turbulence in the back, the vapors end up on your glass. The same thing happens when driving on a damp road at high speeds and the rear window gets sprayed with drops of water, common thing for all hatch backs to get their rear window dirty in some way or another

Correct. And generally the faster you drive, the dirtier your windows get as a result. Try it.
