Welcome to the forum. Put the A/C in auto first of all and leave it like that. If that doesn’t cure it then check the A/C is working correctly.

It is the recommended way to fully utilise the A/C. And that’s exactly what it’s designed for.

If the A/C is working correctly, moisture will be removed from the cabin air.

The cabin air will hit the cold (eveporator) coil, and the moisture will condense on the coil and drip away.

It seems counter intuitive but the A/C should be left on even when the the cabin needs to be warmed. The air is dried first as above then heated and this will de-humidify the interior.

Yes welcome from me too. The A/C is actually Climate Control which as IP and others say should be set to Auto. Normal A/C would not dehumidify but just give cold air.

Sorry but can't agree. The cold evaporator coil even in a straightforward A/C system will still dehumidify the air. This dry air can then be warmed which will in turn lower the humidity in the cabin.
This is why it is called Air conditioning.

Hi W.A,

Welcome to the website and forum.

I have owned my 2004 XJ-V8 since last November and it's brilliant.

Everyone here is friendly and helpful and some of the usernames here ( like TeapotTony and PigletJohn ) make me smile.

Welcome.

Before you spend any money, check that the air conditioning isn't set to recirculation. If the air is being recirculated any humidity created inside the car will condense on the windows, you breath out a considerable amount of moisture.
