    During the Icy mornings I've encountered a strange problem - the rear door seals on the sportback are frozen to the car meaning I can't open the doors. Front doors are fine and doesn't matter if I reverse in or drive into my drive. Thought about a bit of polish on the rubbers but not sure if anyone had a better solution as my daughter doesn't appreciate being kept waiting and wants Iggle Piggle to 'get in the car quick Daddy quick' . (God was has my life become?)
    Sorry for hogging so many threads but when you're on a roll!

    Make sure they are dry & then spray with back to black? I wouldnt think it would freeze, not sure if it might make them squeak though?

    If you want to do it the classy way, you can use Swissvax Seal Feed! Great product, without silicone.

    I use a silicone lubricant on mine that was for the roof/door seals on my S2000 - works brillaintly - you can get a bug tube from Honda for £5 I think
