Re: Doors Stuck?

Sounds like frozen locks to me, try hot water on the locks and unlocking/locking both doors manually with the key a few times (sometimes helps if the key is warm, try holding the key shaft under boiling water for a minute before putting it in the door)

Hopefully that helps, try a search for frozen locks it's quite common.

Re: Doors Stuck?

hi matty, this can be a common problem on the gtv/spider in winter time, best to keep the locks sprayed with wd40 and the door rubbers lubed with silicone oil so you can actually open the doors.
if the problem is not caused by frozen locks then maybe the door card is fouling the locking rod etc, have you removed that for any reason lately?
