Question about 1999 BMW 328 Series

1 Answer

1999 BMW 323iS drivers side door. I cannot open the door from the outside. Inside handles and locks work fine. I have a 328i that has the same problem. I went to open it and something snapped. Now the front driver's handle is loose and doesn't open the door. Inside handle works fine. I'm guessing a plastic/metal part broke and now the handle isn't moving the latch.

    How do i remove the handle to see which part is broken?

  • tojified May 22, 2009

    That is the case. How do I replace it? Is it the part that needs to be painted?

  • tojified Jul 23, 2009

    I ended up taking the handle from the driver rear door and swapping it. I just left the broken handle on the rear until I can find an already painted part somewhere online.

    Dealer only has primed handles.

    the handle itself will be broken if the handle feels loose and sloppy it would of snapped off where it curbd up inside the door (weakest point)

BMW 1996 328i E36 cnvertible Driver side window will not go down and back up when door is opened and then closed? It did this once before but started working but now it has started again.


micro switch may have failed. have a very close look in the door latch fixed to the car...there should be a very small square pressable switch.. open the door and press your finger inside the latch against the little button, the window should drop and raise. If you dont have one there its on the inside of the door lock mechanism.

Have had this problem. Solve it by reading the owner's handbook, which gives clear instructions. Do not use the key in the tailgate door before reading the instructions.
