Outside handle or inside well there are little plastic windows on the trim panel start there then take the inside mirror cover off and then pull at the bottom of door pull out the side and then pull up on trim to take off unhook door switch from botom and then the inside handle is easy from there but if your looking for the outside handle take the vapor barrier of and the take the bolt thats holding the handle out if you cannot then you must drop the lock or latch it has 3 bolt on the outer edge of jamb then you can get the hanlde out its 10mm then go backward the same way

My door want open from the inside a 1997 bmw 528i


You will have to remove the inner door trim panel, and more than likely you will find the small rod connecting the door lock to the pull handle has dropped off. Removing the panel is a job for someone with the tools to release the pop studs and clips etc that hold the panel to the door, there are several and possibly screws as well. Take your time and be aware there will be electrical connectors within the door. It may be that you can loosen the panel and have someone hold it while the door rod is replaced. Check that the rod securing clips are in place.

Need to replace leaking radiator on 1999 bmw 528i


You need the special tool that will hold the water pump pulley and a 32mm open ended wrench. Ebay has the set for around $20.
The thread is the opposite than normal too!
Easy to take it all off with the right tools. 15 minutes max.

1997 BMW 528i The passenger side front and rear doors won't


I had the same problem on the rear door of my 1998 528i and it was the door actuator that had gone bad. I had to take the rear seat out to get the door panel off. Once I had the door panel off it was not that difficult to replace the door actuator.

I have a 99 528i, driver side door won't open from inside or out.


to be honest i would need the car in front of me to diagnose correctly but from the sound of it the mechanism inside the door is worn,the lever that springs open the jaws has worn to the extent that it will not push the two contacts inside the lock open to allow the door pawl to swivel around releasing the door.Only way is too remove the door trim if you can and operate the mechanism with a big screwdriver to open the door then renew the mechanism

Need to know how to replace outside door handle on 97 528i


On your door the inside the panel is removable. remove the screws in the handle on the inside and take it off. Once you get the panel off just reach up in the door and remove the connectors and remove the handle and replace.
