2014 X3 - Unable to open rear right door from inside

I do not know what happened but since yesterday evening I am unable to open the rear right side door from inside. It opens from the outside.

rear left side door opens fine.. I am not sure if this is some kind of child lock...

Anyone had the similar issue in X3?

Most 4-doors have child locks on the back. Take a look in the manual.

E.g., page 58: Controls
Transporting children safely
Locking the doors and windows
Rear doors
Push the locking lever on the rear doors down.
The door can now be opened from the outside only.
Safety switch for the rear
Press the button on the driver's door if
children are being transported in the rear.
This locks various functions so that they cannot be operated from the rear: safety switch, refer to page 43.

Thank you very much for the detailed response. I see it now in the manual.

Looks like it may take sometime for me to understand all the options..

Thanks Again.

And if it's not the child lock, the interior door handle relies on a cable pull to open the door. It may have fallen off (requires dealer service )

Swing by the dealer and have them check it out for you. This is certainly a warranty issue that will not cost you. It is also a safety issue as well if not a child lock thing.

The Owner's Manual is one of the weakest parts of a BMW. It's not very clearly written, and the index is incomplete. Still, I have found it useful not only to read the manual when the car is new, but to re-read it again after six months or a year. Doing this, I've actually learned useful things about my car.
