With frozen car doors, you will want to be careful when trying to open them. If you are pulling on them too hard, the door handle may break. You will want to gently try to loosen the handle. Take some de-icer and use over the handle. This will help you to unfreeze it as well. If there are any issues with the door being frozen shut, you can use the de-icer around the door frame as well. Besides the de-icer, you can use an ice scraper to chip away the ice and snow. You will want to be careful so you do not chip any paint from the door. By loosing the ice and snow, you may be able to open your car door easier than you otherwise could. You will also want to remember to scrape clean the windows.
One of the best ways to open a frozen door is by using the push and pull method. Push a little bit and the pull the door back open again. You will want to do this several times until the door is loose. You can then put your fingers around the edge to help pull it open as well. Make sure to never slam or hit the door hard, as this can cause things to break or become damaged. You can also try to the other doors of the vehicle to see if one of those will open easier.
Remember in the winter to make sure to take everything slow and careful. If the vehicle is cold, hitting a bump or being rough can cause damage to the various parts of the vehicle. Also remember to bring the vehicle in for regular maintenance inspections. By giving it a bumper to bumper inspection, we can notice any issues that will need to be fixed and repaired.
