convertible doors freeze in cold weather, please help
My next problem is with freezing doors/windows. My wife's convertible doors and windows freeze when the car is kept outside. This happens to most cars, and require careful application of pressure to not rip the door handle off. But when I do get the door open, and I try to close it, it won't catch. The only solution I have is to start-up the motor, warm up the car, and let the interior heater heat the doors until they heat up and engage. Otherwise, I could start spraying chemicals into the door, which may not work either.
If I ever want to keep my car in the garage for any length of time, please help me fix this door freezing problem so I can.
I have tried treating the convertible tops foam surrounds that connect with the window. I have tried spraying lock de-icer in the door latch mechanism, which works the first time, but requires continual maintenance.
Is this a problem that bmw convertible owners just have to live with? Do I have bad seals in my doors or is this a common problem with convertibles? I have never seen this in my family's history and we have had many non-bmw convertibles that have never had this problem. Please help...
