Moisture build up after B service?

Morning All
Last month i had a B service on my R170 SLK230.
Since the service i have been getting regular moisture build up inside the car.
Can anybody suggest anything that may have / have not been done on the service which would cause this???
I do not have any apparent water ingress, and drainage plugs are clear.
Thanks for any help

Thanks, it might be a highly stupid question but how do I check that?

My car is also misting more than usual up in the cold damp weather. I suspect my air-con may need a refresh.

I guess it could also be a problem with the fresh air inlet, maybe I'm stuck on recirculate?

Any idea how to test if the AC is working, or if it is an issue with the sensor/controls? Its easy to test in summer by turning the control to "lo", but that's not much of test when the outside air is between 0C and 5C!


In the meantime, I'm driving around with the fan on level 6 or 7, and the direction knob on the "up" setting.

Edit - There's more info in another thread here https://www.slkworld.com/slk-r171-gen...g-windows.html
