Hi, the site came out tops on Google (when looking for central locking problems!).
I have a 2001 325 M Sport, and some git has forced what looks like a screwdriver into the surround (part of the door handle, but not the actual handle itself), that the lock face fits into on the drivers door.
I haven't been able to find out what the eaxct name for the part is, it's the painted plastic that surrounds the metal lock insert itself, and also the (what looks like black rubber / plastic) grommet between that and the door body.
I spoke to a breakers and he thought I would need to buy the whole door lock mechanism (!), meaning new key etc.
I know a good spray guy that can paint a new one for a round of drinks, just need to source the part!
Thanks in advance!
