Winter helpers for frozen solid doors

When you have a winter windscreen cleaner in the tank and a windscreen de-icer ready to hand, then you actually have the winter under control.

Almost: For we continually receive queries asking how to prevent the doors from freezing shut.

Our expert tip for this: The problem of frozen solid doors occurs when moisture collects in the rubber seals in door rebates, around the side windows and in the entry area. This may occur through washing the car or by rain. Bitter cold in the night hours freezes the water residues and then the doors can hardly be opened. As a rule, the car should be dried off thoroughly after washing – also in the entry areas.

To avoid frost induced frustration it pays to regularly protect rubber door seals, which are best treated with a SONAX Rubber care crayon. This handy winter helper is easy to apply, has a water repellent effect and, due to winter proof deer tallow, it keeps the door seals supple, with long term effect.

For car owners without remote control – and also for the household: Think about the SONAX Lock de-icer! It thaws out frozen locks in seconds and lastingly protects against renewed freezing. And the lock is simultaneously lubricated and maintained.

Practical: The SONAX Lock de-icer‘s plastic dosing tip prevents damage to the lock and paintwork scratches.

Remove insects before they damage the paintwork

Insect dirt doesn’t just look nasty – it is an organic „paint destroyer“ that, especially when exposed to the sun, can cause severe damage to the paintwork. And that can prove very expensive, the longer they stick on the paintwork, the deeper the residues eat their way into the paintwork surface.
The anti-glare headlight lenses have to withstand a lot: climatic influences, UV radiation, acid rain, de-icing salt and road dirt, with time they will ensure that the plastic is matt and yellowed.
