    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...

    My 06 Vert has a defective glove box lock. I got it opened using a screwdriver and pushing the latch open. That was easy. After testing the mechanism, I noticed the electric actuator was shot and bought a brand new (inner) unit. I just can't figure out how it all works. I pair the 2 pieces...

    Hello All, Both front doors won't shut..... the moving bit on the door doesn't seem to be moving i.e. moving down and catching the car side of the lock when the door is shut. Maybe a broken spring? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance

    So I've only just recently purchased my 523i e39 and i F****** love it. But, as with any second hand car, there are a few problems and I have no clue how to fix them. The problem requiring the most urgent attention at the moment is my drivers door lock and key. I bought the car knowing there was...

    I'll try and makes this clear the first time, as it gets confusing: This year/model can only lock and un-lock the doors via the key (no remote) 1) Un-locking the drivers side door un-locks the drivers side door and the trunk but not the passenger door. At this point, the passenger door can only...

    So unlike many posts about being locked out, I for one didn't lock my key in the car. I do not have a FOB/remote entry key however. Having owned the car since day 1 however, we have lost the FOB key. I've been for years using a normal key although it's probably called the valet key. I...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have 2011 E90 and when I drive, the car locks and unlocks randomly. It's so random that even when it unlocks itself, it tries to unlock again or sometimes when it's locked, it tried to lock itself again. So it can't be a bad contact on the center console. It continuously tries to lock and...

    The passenger side of door lock (front and back) used to work intermittently with remote. Now the front lock is completely manual. One time it's even broken that I cannot push down the lock. Mechanics said the lock actuator is broken. The part is about $30 online but the labor gonna cost a lot...
