Hey guys I'm new to Corolla ownership and as much as I love my T sport the front demist seems really rubbish it takes ages to clear 5-10 mins to get 75% of the windscreen clear but then a further 5 mins to clear the 25% left on the driver’s side this seems ridiculous? Anyone got any suggestions or is this a common issue?

Thanks

you've probably got the infamous heater matrix problem.If so you may be able to clear it by using sink unblocker or back flushing the matrix ,if not then a costly new matrix install. I have the problem too .ive learned to live with it . one of the very few problems these cars get.

search heater matrix on here for more info .

1. open and empty glovebox

2. on left hand side whip out the philips head screw which holds the little soft open air jack thingy on

3. pull glovebox upwards in like with the same angle it is at when it is open

4. remove glovebox by following step 4 and look behind where the glovebox would be

5. there is a large black plastic casing (around the size of the old VHS cassettes)

6. push the 2 tabs towards each other and remove the top

7. remove the pollen filter and change, remembering to orientate the filter in the right way (they are marked 'UP' with an arrow)

8. do the reverse of steps 1-6 and jobs a good 'un

also on the heater settings if you have got it set to recycle air in the cabin your screen won't demist. set it to use fresh outside air.

hope that helps.

^^ it's always interested my why the aircon auto cuts in when you press the button to make the front screen demist. i was under the impression warmer air would be quickest to demist the screen? or is the a/c used to just dry the air rather than cool it?

Checked mine too this morning as I've noticed the same symptoms as you the last couple of weeks. Same result, lots of twigs and leaves and a black filter. New one just been ordered!
