My Ride: 2001 BMW 330ci
E46 door Lock cylinder

Hey there, I'm new to the forum. Ive been having some issues with my driver side lock cylinder on my 2001 330ci. I read a few post by other members as to what might be the problem. So here are the symptoms, When I unlock the door with the remote I hear it click but the door doesn't unlock and when I try to use the key to unlock it it travels 90 degrees both ways when I rotate the key. I've been going through the passenger door to unlock the driver door. Also note that I am able to lock the car with the remote just can't unlock it.

Any ideas as to what might cause this? I've read a few other posts and have concluded that its the lock cylinder that needs to be fixed. I've already ordered a kit on ebay to fix it, let me know if you guys think I'm right. And given that no one else really has pics of the removal and installation process Ill post some after I fix it if it is indeed the lock cylinder.
