Now, here's the tip. Now that the lock is freed, flood the mechanism with WD-40 to get the water purged out. Then spray in some white lithium grease and you won't have the problem again for a very very long time.

The lock deicer you buy at murrays is also a lock lubricant and floods the lock with deicer and lubricating oils

Next time it happens crap in a bag and squeeze it into the bottom of the window, and into the lock.... the feces stays warm for a good long time :)



**btw i've never tried this but would love to see the results of someone who has**
