    A very slight amount of air like I feel it even in my VW as well with climate control unit and nothing directed to the wind screen. In your case (if picture you posted is your car) I think the recirculation is ON and maybe due to high humidity it's getting foggy inside. High humidity and temperature difference will fog from outside too.

    Ok leave the fresh on and move the knob to the different position as I marked and see what happens.

    The same problem is in my car, the fog builds up on the outside when high humidity is there. This is a quality issue as the direction control flaps dnt close up properly. The only way to solve it is get ur dashboard opened and check for flaps, or just make the direction towards ur feet, it helps a little.

    I don't know how do these cars pass the QC test
    A Ref: In one of our local car assembling company there are Females who put QC test sticker - confirmed.

    The whole wirings are made by ladies, they are laid and clipped by them too, the badges are done by them too.

    QC test is very silly - they start the car - go about a little road and park it. DONE
