Fogged Windows

I have a 95 Wrangler soft top with no rear defrosters. Any suggestions on how to prevent fogging? Thanks!

The first step is to eliminate moisture on the inside of the jeep. Where's the leak? I think bestop has a spray for the vinyl windows to eliminate fogging. I know I use fog-x on my glass.

Leak? Well, it's not sealed too tight. I'll try some anti fog stuff again. I did try the rain-x anti fog but that didnt work too well.

Finding where the moisture is coming in is number one. Do you still have carpets? Are the drain plugs in? Have you considered slush mats? Is it more in the morning with condensation or in the afternoon when it heats up? Have you checked your vent hose on the firewall to see if its plugged?

You could run a small 12V fan positioned to blow air across the rear window; even an old PC CPU cooler fan should do the trick.

Typically when my windows are fogged up, it's a good thing.


Sorry - couldn't resist.

Drain holes are open 24/7 and I removed the carpet years ago. I get the fog mainly while its heating up and of course breathing doesn't help. I'll check the vent hose too.THANKS!!

I just crank up the heater and let it warm up good and hot before I actually get in and go. OTOH my windows are so scratched up and milky that you can't hardly tell the difference anyhow - they're originals.

Make sure your vacuum lines to the HVAC are connected properly and also check to see if the air intake flaps (in the air intake on the hood) are responding the way they should in response to our HVAC controls. I had a real problem with my 92 fogging up when I'd use the heater. As soon as I corrected the vac line to the HVAC controller the fogging stopped immediately and the heat is fantastic.

As far as clearing oxidized fog, you can use Lemon Pledge. It works amazingly well in removing most of the UV generated fogging and makes yer YJ smell good too, lol.
