e34 central locking problem

my driver side door won't open . not inside or outside.. it will lock the car but not open. everything else works fine...

when i turn the key to lock the car it locks and then i turn it again i can here it clicking. of course nothing happens because the car is lockt ... but when i try to turn to open i can hear the same clicking.

so the it seems to have contact in the door ... and things looks fine when i opened it.

any suggestions on the fault ???

Is the lock push button going up and down? Also what year? The actuators changed mid 1991 and pre 1991 there is a problem with the actuators sticking closed.

So you are saying that the button goes up and down and you can not open the door right?

i can close/lock the driver door from the outside and inside and central-system works and closes all the other doors. but cannot open from either the outside or inside on the driver door.... buttons work fine . but i cannot use the open function on the driver door.. so i use the passenger door right now.
