Default Frozen up windows

every time it snows, my windows freeze up, is there any way to keep this from happening? What happens is my bottom window seal on the bottom of the window freezes to the glass. Its annoying to have to run my credit card through the seal to get the windows to roll down after it snows.

anyone have any tips?

up here i pour a little warm water along the seal, being warm it evaporates fairly quickly before it re freexes. don't use HOT water or you might be replacing a window.

but I always have a credit card, I usually never carry warm water on me, and I don't really feel like pissing on my truck, lol

I'm looking more for something to keep this from happening in the first place.

Take plastic wrap, like the stuff you wrap food with and put some over the seal on your door so that the snow and water and things will not stick to it, you could also try and put some Rain-X on there to help the rain and snow get off there.

I have some experience with Rain-X on my windshield and I would rather it not be there. It works well when there is a steady rain, but when it is foggy or misty outside then the moisture beads up into some really little beads and you end up having to run the wipers more often than you should. And then, since there is not enough moisture, the wipers chatter across the windshield.

I do not know if the Rain-X will help with your situation or not. You could try one of the many ice-melt sprays that are sold just about everywhere. Most say they are not harmful to paint finishes or clearcoats.
