Problem opening d/door bmw x5

The other morning after an hard frost, i pulled hard on the drivers door handle to get the door open. since then i have to pull really hard on the handle for it to open and wondered if i could have stretched the cable. i wondered if any adjustment could be made to get more movement from the release catch when operating the door handle.

Hi remove the door card, you may need to reposition the rod, they sometimes bend making it harder to to reach the open position, most likely you will be able to fix this at no cost, just bend the rod back where it should be.

My bmw x5 door handle will not open even the door is unlocked,i can't get to the other door because they are locked.


How did you get the driver's door unlocked. Your other doors should unlock by hitting your key fob button twice. Sounds like the door handle came disconnected or broken.

My x5 bmw driver door willnot open from outside


It sounds like the handle may be broken, or the linkage may be broken or disconnected

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and then you can gain access to the exterior handle

I just go locked out of my X5 BMW 2002 x5 and my


right i had this ***** of a problem 2nd week in jan 2010. a bmw mechanic told to jack car up at front and hook a jumper pack up to live on starter motor terminal and then earth, was quite hard to put croc clip on to starter but did manage it. this was supposed to back charge to battery to get enough power to open car with remote, in theory it should of worked but i gave up after 3 hours-no power. so i got my key put it in drivers door and mechanically turned to open position, then i got a cutlery knife from kitchen and wrapped some insulation tape around tip up 2-3 inches. then i pushed this down glass directly above door handle key end to pry a gap between glass and rubber just enough to slide coat hanger wire in with small hook on end then i manouvered wire hook until i hooked latch arm which i did within 1 minute pulled coathanger wire up and pulled door handle the door opened much to my delight. this was a major sigh of relief after trying for 2 days to get in, and many hours searching the net for a solution which i couldnt find. THIS WORKS 100 percent WITH ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE!!!!!!! any questions email me- jimanddiane@live.co.uk
