Car door freezing shut

You need to take the door panels off (or have them taken off) and lubricate the mechanism with something that will keep the water out. I'd think something like a lithium grease would be appropriate, but that's just a guess.

In that case wd 40 probably won't keep the water out. You need something thick and coating.

The real problem is that water is getting inside the door, but that's probably a much harder thing to solve. Try the grease.

Car door freezing shut

That what I was thinking. Might be simplier just to pay a body shop to do it - doesn't sound like it ought to be very complicated. Thanks.
