Do you have a tiny bung in one corner. If so, you need to remove and direct a hair dryer into it, or just leave it to clear by itself. Those bungs are fragile, especially if never removed before. Replacements are available but hard to find.

In our last van removing the bungs and warming up the window to drive out condensation from between the panes had to be done several times.  I replaced a lostl bung with the bung from the top of a cheap biro which fitted perfectly. 

We have the same thing happen sometimes  in the current Broadway windows but so far it has cleared up by itself so I have not taken any more active measures.

I had exactly the same problem with a side window on my Clubman. The 'hole' was in the corner of the fixed window behind the trim so couldn't get at it without stripping out the strip that secures the window. Tried messing about with a hairdryer with limited success but first warm sunny day with the window facing the sun cleared it completely. No idea why but condensation has never returned.
