    My E46 Door Lock is acting up. When I go place my key into the door lock it will unlock and unlock the drivers side door only which means when I open it I have to rush to turn my key in the ignition to turn the alarm off. It’s hit or miss when unlocking and locking my car as some times it will...

    Hey guys, I had my front right door card off to mess around with my dying window actuator on my late model e46 sedan and when I went to close and lock the door for the night (door card and window actuator was still off, battery still disconnected), I noticed the door wouldn’t lock. At first the...

    I've been trying to get my door lock actuator to work properly since I've had this car. It will not unlock with the fob, but will lock. The locking pin thingy would get jammed when I used the key, and would barely unlock the car, resulting in the door jam getting caught a little when opening the...

    Hi I have been replacing the door actuator on my 328ci 1999 model. In doing so I had to take the window our of the regulator. The fixing on the right hand side (door lock side) was a right pig to take off and get back on. I have reassembled the clamp and the last thing is to line up the...

    greetings all, in order to activate my alarm I have to close my passenger door last. Any idea what is going on what part do I need to replace or can I recondition the door lock module? Searching hasn't gotten me very far. Thanks for any input and help.

    2000 323i, i put the key in and its feels loose, like it doesn't catch. The doors don't lock or unlock. Could it be a fuse?

    Repairing door lock (spins) for a 2000 323ci convertible. I've seen the repair links for the door lock cylinder as well as the parts. Now, gaining access is the next question. I do not have the oval access hole in the door. I do have a smaller round rubber plug which reveals a nut- but it is a...

    Hi all, I have a 2003 330CiC. The passenger door will not open from the outside. The lock actuator appears to work, as the lock button goes up and down when the central locking system is activated. We can open the door from the inside, but needless to say it is a hassle when there is no...

    I''ve got a 2003 325i sedan and this morning when I went to open the driver's door with the key, there was an unusual click and now the key rotates left and right in the cylinder but it doesn't open the door any more. Apparently, a washer in the lock mechanism cracked (which not uncommon I've...

    My latest adventure with my car: the door open on my remote stopped working one day recently (another issue?), so for a few days I used the key to open the driver's door. Then one day, the key turned beyond the normal stop and then the entire cylinder extracted from the door with the key. When...
