My passenger rear door just decided that it wasn't going to unlock anymore. When I hit the unlock button all the doors unlock except for that one, even if I use the handle from the inside the little black think extends and then pops right back into its hole. I can't even open the door because its on permanent lock. Its not a child lock issue so i'm guessing something it jacked up internally...any of you guys had this problem or have any clues on where to start troubleshooting ? thnx

how to open a stucked door

i ;ve had the same problem on my 523i96 and i tried all the ways to open the door.
the problem is with the actuator and there is no way to change it unless you open the door
and remove the door panel . so i went to a door specialist and he open the door but i don;t know how he did .any way you have to find a door specialist to do this .

Reminder

Hey,

If you do take the door off, remember to take off the inside handle screw. I can't remembe the number of times I've screwed that up, lol. By the way, I know about this because of window problems. As everyone knows, window motors/regulators on these cars blow hard. Ha. Good luck and stay cool.

Try this also: hold the outside door latch in the up (open) position while hitting the Open/Lock button on your key.
