dont know the bipper but is it cable from the stick to the gearbox? if so i would say that somewhere the outer cover is damaged and water has got inside the cable and then it freezzes. our hand brake does the same thing. only real cure is a new cable

I have had this in the past. I have now sprayed white grease on the bottom of the lever and linkage. I have got a can which is good to -10 made a big difference. Got it from eBay only £5 . Used it in the wife's polo too.

As stated it is usually water getting into the cables or onto linkage that causes this and oiling the cables and linkage will cure it

Just like frozen door locks pouring boiling water on them or using deicer thaws them but next morning they are frozen again fill them with oil and they no longer freeze.

A good idea with locks is to use them with the key once a week or two. I've had my current 307 18 months and always use the remote.

But if that fails, sods law says it will fail when you're a thousand miles from home during the worst ice rain storm for 100 years. Then you find the lock won't move because its never been maintained!
