Of course, you can imagine just how thoroughly pleased I was that nobody ever listens to my stupid ass. lmao.gif
Oh well, sometimes you have to make the mistake yourself to have it hit you like a ton of bricks.

Not in so many words, I just kinda' reiterated the point about what I had suggested about not locking the doors rofl.gif
It wasn't really that big of a deal, just a PITA to get those sumbitches unstuck.

At least your only set of keys were not locked inside the car with the engine running while low on gas during a snow and ice storm like i mindlessly did once but i was able to open it up with a coat hanger without ruining the doors rubber seal and without breaking the glass window thanx to the old school door locks with heads you can grab onto with the extended wire (*=*)

I guess we're going to have to go and get some lock de icer spray, but I have my doubts as I've already used hand sanitizer which is chemically similar and works to displace moisture.
Damn Italian cars were not meant for this weather. Wouldn't have this dilemma with a SAAB, Volvo or even a Fjord.

I suggested windshield washer fluid, I understand hot water is a bad idea, the lock mechanism on newer cars are plastic and going from cold to warm quickly can permanently damage it, eventually costing some big euros to shut your door.
All went well, we got all the doors unstuck and I lubed it all with WD40. We wont be locking it up any time soon. chuckle.gif

Freezing weather is a PITA.

I've had my share of frozen locks ~ I usually tried heating the keys (in the days before 'smart' keys) hair dryers, cigatette lighters, boiling water and even prayer. Eventually they'd come open ~ but a few times I had doors where the latch was frozen (once open) and the damned thing wouldn't latch shut ~ hadta' hold the bitch closed (yeah, right with arctic wind howling in) through all the left turns.

That is one of the reason I choose to live south of the Mason Dixon.

I hate winter.
