1. Park the vehicle in the warm sun. This sometimes works because the metal of the vehicle expands when exposed to the heat of the sun’s rays. This may take a very long time depending on the strength of the sun’s rays so patience is definitely a virtue in regards to this method.

2. If there is no sun where you live or it just does not come out that often, the alternate method to provide heat is to use a hairdryer. Hold the hair dryer about 6 inches from the surface of the vehicle. Do this for intervals of two minutes at a time. Be extra careful not to hold the dryer against the vehicle itself as this can and will cause damage to the paint job.
