    hi

    first i am sorry if i came to a wrong place to ask for help, im having issues with the central locking on my 330ci conv, the passenger door doesn't open with the remote central locking but it does lock if im locking the car, the button inside (next to hazard button) doesn't do anything for the passenger door when i press it only locks/unlocks the driver side door, i can only open the passenger door from inside any ideas what could it be?

    Thanks

    I would guess that the cause is most likely the passenger door lock actuator. That is the part that has the c.locking motors, and door catch. I have often seen coupe variants seize up.

    Alex875, what part did you get from BMW for £26? I am most curious. The door lock actuator is about £85

    Hi
    I had it done and it happens to be the door lock actuator costing £75 + vat and 1 and half hour labour, got it done under warranty.
