How to remove ice from flush door handles

In extreme winter conditions, the door handle may not open due to icing inside the door handle. Remove the ice as below.

1. Remove icing by tapping the door handle using the bottom of your fist in a circular pattern along the perimeter of the door handle.

2. If necessary, increase the intensity of tapping to remove ice, and repeat until the door handle protrudes when unlocking the door.

3. When the door handle protrudes and can be pulled, open and close a few times to remove any icing residue.

  • * Instead of tapping the door handle, warm the door handle indirectly (i.e. hand temperature, etc.) to remove icing inside.

※ Warning

- Before performing this procedure, remove any jewelry or objects that could damage the paintwork and do not attempt to use tools or excessive force.
- Do not apply excessive force or use sharp objects to the door handle. It may be damaged.
