Problems getting into my S3 in the cold weather/ice
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Since the temperature has dropped and it has started to be icey my car on two occasions now the doors just won't open. The handle comes up but it is as if its not connected the door is just solid and still on the catch. The boot opens but I am not going to climb through there as you are asking for a world of pain on the leather!
The only way I've been able to get in is by using the remote key (once the windows are fully defrosted) and bringing the windows down (but my window has broken clips/motor/regulator so it was a b**ch to get back up!!) then using the inner handle which works fine, must overide the outer handle?? This morning I got into the car eventually, started it up then about a minute later had to take something back into the house then shut the door again, guess what yep now the car was running and the door was stuck with no remote to bring windows down again!! got in after a minute of warming up thank god!
WHAT A MORNING! :keule:
The car is going in to the garage today so will ask him to look at it as the door is being taking apart to get window fixed and a few other things like door window switch and speakers (i think the connection to the door is dodgy! grr).
Anyway lengthy I know but would be great to hear what you think!
