I have the same issue and I've always just chalked it up to condensation. My previous cars would have condensation on the inside of the windshield but never to the point where it runs down like in my focus. Let us know what the dealer says.

Moisture in Veh.

I was just informed by the dealership that there is a bad seal in the front by the wipers, will have more info later after repairs are completed.

The dealership replaced a seal at the driver side wiper area, I hope that will fix the moisture issue

I might see if mine has that too.

Last month when we had a bunch of warm rain and then it got colder I kept having condensation. I park my car inside the garage during the day, and work graves so it is outside at night. For multiple nights in a row I had an inside windshield that was dripping wet... tried running A/C and driving with windows down to get the moisture out but it kept coming back for several nights.

Hasn't done it in a month or so though.

Do you know the TSB number? I couldn't find one, and my service advisor said he didn't see any in the system.

The wiper motor seal is either a tsb or recall. I didnt see a tsb number either.

Okay, you're talking about something different. Yes, there's a recall for a potentially missing plug on the passenger side wiper motor.

The problem that some of us are having, apparently, is that the seal around the windshield isn't right, letting in moisture.
