As I attending alfresco a the abhorrent weather, I acquainted it was appropriate to ask you (and the B&B) a almost simple yet appropriate catechism about preventing car aperture freezing: aperture handles, windows, etc, during the benumb and thaw cycles that we are added experiencing.
On Sunday our temperature accomplished a almanac low of – 22C but on Thursday we had active rain and a almanac aerial of 10C melting all the snow. Friday we are bottomward to – 13C with high apprehension and freezing rain/sleet/snow. All of these benumb thaw cycles comedy calamity with our autos.
The aerial temperatures accumulated with the alkali acclimated to accumulate the anchorage beneath icy after-effects in rusting. Perhaps beneath austere but aloof as arresting are the freezing of windows, doors, aperture locks and aperture handles.
Historically I accept acclimated a cardinal of altered types of lubricants and sprays to action this.
My questions are:
Son, why you gotta booty this Houston kid outta his abundance zone? But abreast from Vaseline actuality a clay magnet, I accede with your dieting to anticipate car aperture freezing.
Consider that plastic aperture handles, window regulator bits, and all elastic items age. So accepting beneath attrition agency a lower adventitious of burst mechanisms as the years go by.
Definitely use silicone-based lubricants on aperture handle mechanisms, weatherstrip and aloof about every added rubber-based aperture component, alike window approach runners. Silicone sprays are fabricated accurately to prolong the activity of elastic parts. Avoid WD-40 or agnate oil-based biting aqueous as they can leave a adhering residue, appropriately authoritative things worse. (Not to bag on WD-40, they accept a abounding ambit of lubricants.)
Using a dry adipose (usually graphite) for keyholes and latches is ideal to accumulate things glossy after alluring dirt. And accord the door/trunk/hood hinges a attempt of white lithium grease to accumulate them affective like new, too.
Now is Teflon aerosol any bigger than Silicone? I’d like to know! I’ve been blessed with silicone’s non-stick address and elastic conditioning qualities (and squeaky aperture silencing on E39 M5s) alone for 10-plus years, so that’s a catechism for the B&B.
