I'm so excited. This my first post here. I live up in central Canada where it gets pretty darn cold up here. Night time lows have been -35 to -40 farenheit. I have had my 1998 Jetta 4 door for 1 year and everytime that I wash the car, the door locks freeze. I thought if I used a lock de-icer that it would help. The problem seems to be coming inside the door with the latch. I can lock and unlock the doors with my key and can pull the handle but the darn doors don't open. How do I get in you ask? Through one of the back doors. i usually have to drive for about 2 hours with the heat on high and the vents pointed at the doors. Even doing that seems to be a task these days. I know that this is a problem since I have heard it from 2 other peoplea friend at work who has one and from a gentleman at the dealer who ask the service man not to wash his car. The only solution that I could think of was to open the door panel and see what can be done. Any ideas? Thanks.
