Door Lock Tip - where can I get this part?


#7 the part that you don't normally pull to open the door. My passenger must have pulled it out because they couldn't open the door.

Update: It's called Lock Button. Thanks for the replies, it did help me track down just the button.
Some of these don't specifically mention FX25 fit, still investigating. Amazon had a 3 year old review said it was tricky to install on his 2011 X3.

Goto realoem.com, input your vin, get the part number for said part and then take the part number to your dealer or google the part number to find hundreds of part places that deal online in bmw parts.

RealOEM shows the rod, but not the tip that pelicanparts shows. I've never found realoem to be wrong, but it could happen. Reach out to the guys at getbmwparts.com or try your local dealer - how much could it cost, even at the usual BMW parts counter prices?

For the F25 X3, the 'Operating Rod' under part # 51217205796 (front, right/passenger's side) will include the lock button. It is not available separately for this model.

Order by part # here.
