    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
