frozen locks

my locks have frozen up THREE times in the last 2 weeks. it seems like the degree they're frozen is proportional to how much they get used: ie. the key won't even go all the way into the driver's, the key will go all the way into the passenger's but won't turn, and they key goes in and turns in the hatch.

so what do i do? i end up climbing into my car thru the f-ing hatch.

i bought some 'qualco lock de-icer' from napa and it doesn't do shit. any other suggestions (besides a hairdrier)? is this common on 8-9 year old integras? i don't remember it happening this bad on my old '92 civic. how much would a new set of locks cost, or maybe i could add keyless entry?

hey my 95 RS does the same shit

I took the door panels off and sprayed the white plastic machanism for the locks full of WD40 and it hasent done it since. That lock de-Icer stuff works if the key doesn't go in but if its not turning once it's in then this is what you need to do.

yeh that happened to my G2I also..i think what the other guy says about the WD40 is the best bet on fixing your problem.

when you say the door panels, do you mean the inside plastic part? how'd you get them off? are there just clips or screws like the rear panels? (sorry, i'd go out and check, but like i said, it's dark and cold )

.

There is a screw inside where the door handle is under that little flap. Also one screw visible in the handle u use to close the door and one more visible at the front of the door panel. the rest is just clips you can pop the door panel off.

i hear the powder graphite lube is much better than the de-icers... i'm not sure about the brand, but are the ones you're talking about in the tiny cylinders, or in a spray can?
