Frozen locks and windows?
Below-freezing temps can cause ice to build up on car doors and windows. Here are a few tips for getting unstuck:
- Try another door. (You may get lucky!)
- Spray a little WD-40 into the lock. (Fact: WD stands for ‘’water displacement, so it is an effective way to displace ice)
- Use an aerosol de-icer, available at many hardware and automotive stores.
- Smear a little hand sanitizer on your key and gently work it into the lock. The alcohol in the hand sanitizer may do the trick.
Frozen Power Windows:
- Don’t force the window – you could damage your weather strip.
- Turn on your car. As it warms up, ice around your window should begin to melt.
- Insert a credit card or plastic comb between the glass and weather strip, and gently chip away icy buildup.
