2000 E-class with the automatic cliamte control option - unless I use
the demist screen button (which turns he heat up to HI and fan to full
blast), the windscreen and side side windows mist up. I had to keep
juggling demisting the screen / opening windows / trying the heater to
keep things clear - not very relaxing at night!
Having looked at the owner's handbook, it appears that I was pressing
the right buttons.. any thoughts on what the problem might be (quite
happy for it to be user-error!)?
You can adjust the airflow to the windshield by clicking the blower
directional control button a couple of times so that one of the arrows (on
the climate control LCD) is pointing up. So if it is humid, this will
demist the windshield (assuming that the AC is working).
Now if you are seeing a lot of mist slowly developing from the bottom of the
windshield around the ducts, then the problem *might* be a vacuum leak that
is not allowing the vents to close all of the way.

So EC stands for economy?
My 1986 190e didn't come with a owners manual, so I have kind of been
deciphering the heating/cooling system as I go.
It seems to me like pushing the defrost looking button on the far left,
automatically puts the fan on high and the AC on full?
Don't know. If there is an explanation of these controls somewhere I
would love a link to it...
in the summer when its HOT OUT the mist will be on the outside as you're
cooling the glass and it will sweat.
turn on wiper for windshield.
mine blows COLD in the summer
and it chills th glass.
the case, minus a few cans!
