Door problems help!

I have a 2002 330ci. The passenger door has always been difficult to open up. I went to adjust the screw that make the handle work better and it seemed stripped. Not even 2 hours later one of my friends went to open the door and the handle just pulled and I heard the screw fall down the door. The handle now does not do anything. What exactly to I have to buy in order to fix this? Below is a diagram of the door mechanism.

Thanks

Hi,
depends - were you able to open the door after stripping the screw? If not, you need whole #01(door lock with motor actuator) part.. exactly this happened to me half an year ago If you were able to open the door before the sound, it could be just unplugged cable(happens, there's lot of threads about it). Just open the door from the inside, take it apart and have a look..

good luck!
