Need a little help here, windows fogging

I've been driving mustangs for a long time and I've owned a 91 LX Notch-Back and a 1998 GT coupe but I've recently picked up a 07 GT coupe and its bone stock for now. The problem is that it seems in the fall I'm getting a lot of interior fogging on the front and back windshields. I changed the in cabin micro filter and made sure both drains below that are clear. But yet it still fogs up. Does anyone know if this is normal for this model or not. It's driving me nuts. Yes it has been raining for a few days here to

Drives me crazy!!! Mine does the exact same but I figured it was because I had a convertible. It's also an 07 I can't stop it from fogging

It's driving me up the wall! I keep thinking there is leak, and there is nothing. I've even checked under all the seats. Now I'm getting worries it's going to mess up the interior. I shut off the vents every time I park the car too. I'm at a loss.

I've heard of this happening before. The story is that there's a leak somewhere around the glove compartment area. Check under the carpet for the water--that's where people have been finding the moisture. I haven't heard of a solution, but logically you'd have to find the leak and seal it. Damn guys, that sucks, but good luck to you.

Try using damp rid in the car to pull out all the moisture

These year stangs aren't my specialty, but I think I vaguely remember something about the vents collecting moisture?..
Not sure if there was a fix for it or not.

I've read on S197 Forum IIRC, the clips that hold the cowl vent on, the sealant (or gasket) on them breaks down after a few years and can let moisture in. I believe the fix was to pop them out and use urethane sealant similar to what us used on the windshields, NOT silicone sealant. I'm planning on doing my 10 next summer just to nip it in the bud. Also check all your window seals real good! HTH

+1 There is a leak somewhere. There are 2 drain holes on the firewall down low that drain the cowl, stick your finger in there and make shur ther not clogged. If they are clogged, the water backs up thur the vent. Possibly the windshield also. Hope you have better luck finding the problem than I have.

I had a guy that repairs sun roofs and vert tops tell me to remove the front cowl plugs. The guy really knows his **** so maybe try that.
