2013 750i Soft close just went nuts

So the soft close on my car just went crazy today. Here's a youtube link of what it does now:

The sound can be quite embarrassing. Does anyone have a fix for this before I go get it replaced at the dealer?

Use a screwdriver to close the latch and see if it still does that. If so, the motor/latch assembly probably just needs to be replaced.

My rear drivers door is doing the same thing, but I have not had time to work on it yet. Others have said to move the latch outward towards the door, & the CA will close properly. It seems that this is happening quite often. If I was going to remove the locking assembly, I would open it up & inspect the internal spring. My 2007 drivers door did the same thing, & the spring had come loose, & not holding the latch in place. The hard part is getting the lock in & out of the door.
