Winter Related Gremlins


Recommended Posts

The drivers door on my focus seems not to like the cold snap we're having.

It seems that when the temp is below 4 degrees the wing mirror and central locking stops working. Once the car has warmed up they work again.

Anyone else have some little niggles like this in the winter?

sounds like water ingress somewhere on the door, might be worth spraying the lock, and the joints generously with WD40 or another silicone based product to eject any moisture that has built up?

my passenger door froze the other week. not the central locking, but the latch didnt even shut the door, it just bounced back.

spray of WD40 and a concoction of other spray lubes in the garage sorted it!

..now my biggest problem seems to be the windscreen washer freezing!
