Driver's side door won't unlock with key

I just purchased a 98 Z3. The driver's side door will not unlock with the key. It will lock if I turn the key to the right. The key won't turn to the left. When I unlock the passenger door with the key the driver's side door unlocks as well. Is it the driver's sided lock cylinder?

Thx

You might have more luck if you post this in the Z3 forum. I'm not sure I've heard of this issue on Z4's before
If the key just won't turn right in the driver's door, it does sound like the mechanism is jammed - ie, a mechanical fault.
