Garage
Try it without the WD40 and see if there's any difference.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I agree! I used to use Pam (cooking spray) or silicone spray. Yesterday was a sloppy type of snow, no issues since I did the mod as well.

DuPont makes a pretty good silicone spray that seems to last a while. I have been using it on my shovels to keep the heavy crap from sticking.
