It's common to all frame less side window cars.Happened to me this morning. The rimless windows were frozen and wouldn't come down far enough to clear the door frame. Had to pour some water over the window whilst unlocking and locking until it freed up. Design flaw?Maybe it never frosts over the winter in Milan...
Ha...and I've just read on another thread that the 159 would be better if it had frameless windows! :cheese::lol::cheese: Personally, every morning when my car lets me get in out of the cold, I think Alfa got it just right with the 159It's common to all frame less side window cars.
Plenty of silicone lube on the seals (spray onto a cloth or tissue then apply) sorts the issue:thumbs:
Hey you have a stalker already - normally takes us years to get one of those! :cheese:its not the windows freezing, they actually come down and i still cant get in the car! Plenty of hot water over the handles and around lock area and i can get in. Which makes me think its a fault with the locks,maybe moisture inside.
Odyssey21 yes i do live near a school and the school you are on about..........small world!
i do have the drive away door lock activated and nothing seemed out of the ordinary, anyway i now know not to do that again.I guess the door mechanism on your passenger door must have moved to the position that allows the door to open, then frozen in that position (rather than returning when the handle was released). It was probably just the ice around the door seal that was still holding it closed. I assume you haven't activated the 'drive-away' doorlocking? Presumably, if the door was locked it wouldn't have flown open when the ice thawed?
Can't say I blame it - in this weather I'd prefer not to wake up until lunch-time too! :lol:Since the frreeze my nearside electric folding mirror on my Brera has decided to stay put until lunchtime then its fine until the next morning, anyone else had the same problem.
I just love all these little niggles ( yeah Ok in any other marque faults!) Until it's my bella in the morning that WON'T open!!! Or I do the who is quickest with the door button ...her or me! :tut:Can't say I blame it - in this weather I'd prefer not to wake up until lunch-time too! :lol:
