I have a 91 Sierra truck. Earlier today it rained, then got cold and
later I could not get into the truck. I finally managed to open one
door on pass side. The driver door is still stuck. I was not within
close reach to an outlet to use a hair dryer. At least now I moved
the truck near an outlet. If I had not been able to pound with my
fist and force the door I would have been locked out. Using a torch
on the paint did not seem like a good idea. But without electricity
there would have not been another way.
My thought is that what is needed is a preventative measure. Applying
something around the door seal. But what? I'd rather not use
something that will get all over my clothing, like auto grease. I
suppose vaseline would not be too bad of a mess, but maybe there's
something else. Does anyone have any ideas? My other thought is
silicone spray, but that seems to evaporate in a short time.
What can I use?
I should mention that I have had this problem on other vehicles, but
because of the door design, this truck seems to get worse.
Thanks for all advice
