This usually happens in the cooler months when your breath condenses on the inside of the windscreen before the A/C can manage to dry the air out. Not sure what to do about it, maybe someone else here can help out with that - but I've had the same problem a few times. What worked for me was to take the CC off auto and disable recirculation, forcing it to use outside air.

This can happen if water is leaking into the car, check under carpets in footwells for signs of water

I don't mean the matts I mean the carpet. You will have to remove the trim to lift the carpet and I can't see you taking them out every week as I'm sure you need to remove seats to take carpet out

Have you also checked boot

That happens a lot if you use the super de-mist setting. I think the water condensed out by the ac doesn't drain properly and gets blown back out of the system.

After using the super de-mist I run the heating on high with air forced from outside (with a low fan speed so the cabin doesn't get unbearably hot) to try to 'dry the system out' and that seems to keep it under control.

If I do short journeys with the super demist on then the condensation seems to get progresssively worse.
