Long time lurker, first time poster here hoping someone might be able to help recommend (or is) a garage that could help with door related problems on my 330ci. I live in Herne Hill, London so looking for garages that are not too far from here (ie willing to travel up to 20 miles)
Basically the driver side actuator is not working properly (had the GM5 module tested to rule that out) and I sourced a replacement part on ebay (link below). Unfortunately the garages I have called so far will not replace it for me as they (understandably) worry that I would blame them should the part fail - regardless of my re-assurances.
I'm not that afraid to do the work myself, but live in a flat and so don't have access to a Garage space with artificial lighting (sounds like this job needs it!).
If anyone here can recommend anyone to do this work for me that would be great. Otherwise I'm looking at buying a second (brand new) actuator....
Whilst this has been going on, the passenger side door handle will no longer open the door (after some reading I've concluded the cable tie has broken) so need that looked at too
