Frozen Doors & Frameless Windows solution

Post by Kasfranks99 » Sun Jan 06, 2019 6:53 pm

Thought I would share a very simple product (Gummi Pflege.) which solves the problem of frozen doors and windows. I had an issue last year with one of my cars (not the Macan) which I left on the drive.
I struggled to open the door the next morning and it’s felt like the handle was going to come off I had to pull that hard.
This stuff solved the issue. It’s also conditions the seals. (Use it around the Pano Roof seals would be great too)

It’s the easiest stuff to use, takes 2 minutes max and no mess. It’s great for cars especially that have frameless windows that have to drop for the doors to open. (911).

It’s a product that’s been around for ages but really does work. It’s cheap too 😀

Hope this helps.

I will give it a try ....

Not sure the original link took you to the correct product. Presume this is the same stuff. Thanks.

ScotMac your amazon link is the right stuff. 👍

I didn’t put a link on mine but this forum website makes certain words into links on its own. It’s how it makes money along with all the other advertising etc.

And could it invalidate your warranty?

It was a VERY tongue in cheek comment!

Very grateful for the link and have some on order as it seems to be getting very frosty

Someone recommended this last year and it got a bottle. It doesn't work on the windows. The problem is the have a sort of brush like finish which accumulates water which then freezes. The Gummi pflege doesn't seem to stop this.

Try a drop of silicone spray on the felt seals.
