    steering frozen

    I noticed the other day that when the temp drops my steering cable freezes. Once the temp gets up it works fine. I obviously have water in the cable. Is this a problem and is there a way to fix it?

    use a good penetrating lubricant, work it, work it, work it
    I've seen people use compressed air to help get it in there too.

    Yeah, one of mine does that too. Freezes in the garage, but once I turn on the heat it works again. Never been an issue in the summer though.
