The part that's broken isn't sold individually from the dealer, AFAIK. You can order a replacement that's coded to your car with VIN and proof of ownership. Easy replacement.

There is a repair kit sold on ebay, but I haven't tried it. $20 vs. $100.

Who told you about this thread? There's been a secret pact since '11 not to tell you. You should leave and delete your posts.

If you didn't know about this thread, I'm pretty sure you shouldn't try to repair your car. Also, in the General Forum, it's considered impolite to ask any one fanatic a question...if others read of your doorlock issue and thought they could help, some my be embarrassed or too 'dissed' to want to respond.

I read that Kalim recently jump started a car by just holding the two terminals. Were you there for that?

Looks like the right kit.

Latest updates...


Three weekends ago, I took care of some more maintenance on Rick's car:

-Started off with the fuel filter and replaced the soft hose sections which were starting to dry rot
-Changed the spark plugs
-Replaced the automatic radiator with a manual version (left over from the 5spd swap) and bled the cooling system

-Next day, changed the coolant temperature sensor in the lower radiator hose since it was leaking. I've seen many cars with the exact same problem this winter season.
-Replaced the power steering pump and the high pressure hose. The hose was leaking and the pump had been damaged. Refilled and bled the system.

Two weekends ago:
-Replaced leaking power steering hoses from the reservoir and o-rings on an E39.
-Also spent some time diagnosing a cold idle dip on that car.
Later that day:
-Changed the oil on Rick's car
-Changed the diff oil
-Replaced the two lower main bolts that hold the transmission on

Last week:
-Reflashed an E90 335i with Alpina transmission software. What a difference!
-Worked on Derek's subframe to prep for the M3 LSD swap

Last weekend, finished up Rick's car:
-Lubricated the throttle cable
-Installed some PIAA horns with a very nice sound. (OEM horns were missing.)
-Removed the gauge rings from the instrument cluster
Also worked on that race couch above.

This week:
-Flashed an E92 335i with the Alpina transmission software. It's really gaining popularity.
-Worked some more on Derek's M3 LSD swap. Got the brakes off and removed the e-brake cables since we'll be reusing his 330 ones which are in better shape.

Oh and Nathan (wh33lhop) has been over quite a bit trying to get his Metric Mechanic LSD and rear wheel bearings sorted so we've spent some time under his car, too. Haha.

Today, I left my comfort zone a bit and helped Jimmy (jimmymoo) replace the accessory belts in his beater, an Infiniti QX4. It's interesting how they used a combination of ribbed and v-belts on this particular motor. The tensioning mechanism for the v-belt is very similar to the one used on E30s, but the design is much more durable and accurate, if a bit more time consuming.

Rick also stopped by to pick his car up today.
