    Does it work for windows too? I own a car with frame less windows, so every time I open the door, the window moves down a little bit in order to let me open the door, but the window is frozen and nothing moves, so I wonder if this trick would be safe for the seals around the window

    On my 2011 Sierra 1500 my doors act like it is still locked when it is not. It always does it when it gets into 20’s. It’s not the door itself getting stuck

    It's awesome when you break the handle off trying to open it, not knowing it was frozen! Lol!

    When I was a fleet mechanic, the best way to keep your doors from freezing was to not piss me off. Otherwise, I'd wash your van and put it outside right away during the cold snaps.

    I take spray called Aerospace 303 and spray that on the rubber seals and let that absorb, then come back later and spray a silicone blend called Maxima SC1 on all the rubber seals as well as the sheet metal areas that the rubber touches against. Works especially well on power liftgates used on SUVs. Special attention to the horizontal areas farthest from the hinge points, as that's where the mechanical advantage of the frozen seal will be the strongest against the lift gate cylinders trying to pop open the gate.

    And where would you apply silicone so that the Windows don't freeze shut?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jinksy says:

    I have used engine oil as a quick fix! I drive cab in Ontario Canada and we have to wash the vans @ the end of every shift! had nothing else to use @ the time and it worked great! Keep up the great work, there's lots of guys on here doing the same thing you are! But love watching you over ALL those others cause you explain EVERY detail of what your doing and just by that I feel 100% more comfortable trying to do something myself just by watching you! Again thanks bro!

    WD40 works amazing for this too,

    Would the dry line spray work for this Eric? It's a non- silicone based spray, we used it a lot on t wood working tools.

    Thank's for the tip. I have a 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S. I'm not sure how to word this, but the rear passenger door will not "close shut" in the winter months. I'm sure it has to do with the locking mechanism. Have you encountered something similar?  Great videos by the way. I came across one on Tuesday and have subscribed and continue to watch.
