2011 535i Driver Door Making Clicking/Ticking Noise When Door Is Closed

Hi everyone,

I've got an issue with my 2011 535i: When I close the driver door, I can hear something near the lock or handle clicking/ticking multiple times (maybe 6 times). It could be a soft close issue or actuator or motor, but I wouldn't know exactly without replacing parts on by one, so I'm hoping for some expertise here.

See video:

Anyone know what this is caused by? I'm hoping to get some ideas before I start replacing things that don't need to be replaced.

I wouldn't know if something here is failing or just misaligned in some way and can be repaired without replacing parts.

Any input is appreciated.

Thank you all

That's the same sound I got when my CA handle went bad.

Hmm that's interesting - you heard the 6 clicks when you closed a door, and replaced the comfort access door handle or repaired it, and the problem went away?

Did you repair the handle or replace it?

Thanks for writing

Mine would click a bunch of times, i don't remember how many. I had BMW replace the handle under warranty. Same thing happened to another handle and I just disconnected it.

I see - so they just replaced the handle and it resolved the clicking issue. With the other handle, you just disconnected the wiring and you can use the handle just without the CA feature?
