Door lock broken '88 528e
- Unlocked my door last night and as I turned the key to unlock all
doors the mechanism make a snap sound and turned way too far and the
doors did not unlock. The key now goes front to back making a
clicking sound and does not lock/unlock doors anymore. The central
locking 'system' still funcitons from the trunk or pass door.
Any one else experience this? Anyone know what am I dealing with here
in terms of repair?
- I too have the same issue w/ my 87 535i. What I've
been told is that you can order a complete lock
assembly (only from the dealer). You'll need you
original key, VIN number and they should be able to
set you up w/ a new lock assembly. I've yet to do it
mainly because the trunk & pass. door still work fine.
You'll be looking at a few hundred bucks though.

- Larry is right on the money with how to fix this. If you don't want
to buy his lock the dealer sells a repair kit that you swap your
keying wafers into. Back when I did mine a few years ago the cost was
about $50 I think.
