I got a call from the dealer and they ordered the new redesigned top vent and will have it tomorrow. If Chris didn't post it I would not have researched it and it never would have gotten fixed. Thanks.
WHOA WHOA WHOA, i have a 2002 C230 coupe, and i get the haze all the time, is this a defect, if I order the new vent, is it free or is it just something I would have to do with my own money ? whats different about the vent, and what settin do you guys keep your ac knob on ?
I had no idea. I'll call my dealer and have them fix it. <br> <br> Also, I keep my AC on 65 hit auto when I get in car to cool it off, then shut it off and put the fans on a low setting (center air channels). That does the trick on those hazy and humid Boston summer days.
I live in a desert, it's not humid but I get the haze. My upper vent is always closed because it's noisy yet I still get the haze coating on the windshield. My A/C is always on auto and it's set to about 71 degrees most of the time and the vent control knob is set to the two square boxes at the 9 o'clock position.<br> <br> I've heard 2 stories on the replacement vent. On the forums I've heard that the new vent is made from a different material that doesn't release the chemical vapors and the dealer said the new vent is redesigned to direct air away from the windshield. Either way it can't be as bad as before and it's free and I get a E320 for 2 days. It's up to you if this bothers you enough because I have a friend with a 2001 C320 and he never noticed it until I pointed it out to him.
