Well, it wants to be on "Auto" rather than "Econ" first off. Econ doesn't use the air conditioning unit to dry the air like it does on Auto. After that, just make sure you get it coming out of the centre and side dash vents to get the air to the back of the car. It's no use round your feet which is where Auto seems to like to put it, and you should be ok.

Morning Rusty, I will try that and see how it goes, is there any filters or anything for the AC that might need to be changed, this probably a silly question but just thought i would ask. Ta Aiden

Not sure on filters. There's a pollen filter somewhere, but I don't know what the impact is of not changing it etc.

Water always finds the lowest point so I'd check your carpets etc to see if they feel damp.

If you've been out in the rain and get into your car, you should expect some misting up as the water evaporates off you. It also depends on how far you drive, if you're only going 5 minutes round the corner I wouldn't expect the very rear windows to be clear.

The other thing is make sure the windows are thouroughly clean. Use a proper window cleaning spray or cloth, you'll be surprised how much difference it makes
