Tip & How-To about BMW 318
Basically, whats happened is that the cable that opperates the opening mechanism has become streched and subsequently slack rendering your door unopenable over time. A dealership will charge you an arm and a leg to fix this but its really quit easy and only takes two minutes.
1 open the offening door.
2 look at the side of the door for a small rubber/plastic cap.
3 pop it out with a flat head screw driver.
4 look inside to reveil a "Allen key" bolt.
5 put in your "Allen key" and turn clockwise to tighten the inter cable or left to loosen....... remember ! RIGHTIE TIGHTIE, LEFTIE LOOSIE :)
It really is that simple! and remember, Practice and enjoy.
