Yes water will freeze around the enitre perimeter of the door keeping you from opening the door. This happens all the time to my wifes Passat B3.

Yes, common problem with our cars. You have to think it never gets near freezing in Germany or something.

Re: driver door wont open? (Cooper)

I was unable to find the frozen door topic in the search but someone posted in detail how to go about solving the problem of frozen door locks. I seem to remember you have to take the door panel off and packing the door lock assembly with grease. Every VW I've owned has had this problem.
