Outside door handle not working/questions

My mom just called and said she can't open the door from the outside.

Did some searching around/research and it seems like most common problem is Door Handle Carrier.

I found few instruction guides but wondering if anyone has any videos etc? I will most likely tackle this myself.


My question is, where should I get the part? Seems like OEM BMW one is garbage, am I better off going with some aftermarket brand?

What would you guys recommend?

Any other info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
