I'm a driving instructor – so many learners don't know about 'hidden' button that de-ices windscreen in seconds | The Sun

LEARNER drivers are only just discovering a simple hack that can de-ice a windscreen in seconds.

With the weather across the UK cold, windy and stormy at the moment, this brilliant tip could be very useful for road-users braving wet or icy conditions.

In a clip posted to TikTok by expert driving instructor Mike Hinton, motorists are shown three simple steps to de-mist a windscreen that includes a 'hidden' button many simply don't know about.

Mike begins the clip by pointing to a button that can be found in the middle of his car's dashboard display.

He says: "First off, you need to look for the button with this icon [front windscreen de-mister].

"You then press it and turn the fan up to full."

After pressing the de-misting button, the clip then shows Mike turning the fan dial all the way to the maximun setting.

He continues: "Then, depending on whether it’s hot or cold outside, you choose cold or hot to the maximum.

"Then the windscreen will start de-frosting and de-misting."

Indeed, after a moment, the driving expert's windscreen perfectly de-mists.

This tip comes after another expert showed off a brilliant cleaning hack to de-ice a windscreen using a dirt cheap product and a two step method.

Meanwhile, police have issued an urgent warning to drivers of the hugely popular Ford Fiesta model as one is stolen every six hours.

Cops have even urged drivers to fit extra security devices to their motors and remain vigilant.

The sharp rise in thefts is believed to have been at least partially sparked by Ford's decision to discontinue the Fiesta last year.

And elsewhere, The Sun's Motors editor Rob Gill got behind the wheel of an ultra-rare Bentley that comes with 18-karat gold controls… and an enormous price tag.
