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

SOURCE: how to remove pasenger door panel on 2002 bmw x5

remove the trim on the top portion of the door panel closest to the handle exposing t 20 screws, then remove one more at the lower part of the panel,then remove the air bag trim pice to expose the final screw now totalling 4,lower the window and then remove the switch,pry back the lower part of the panel first until loose,then pull away top portion by lifting at the same time as there is a small square black clip in the centre of the panel,also be sure not to damage the lock plunger as if bent will get stuck in the up and down motion when locking,remove the grey vapor barrier with a razor blade and loosten off the 43 10 mm bolts holding on the air bag (only the front doors)you an use a hair dryer or a heat gun to soften the strip caulk as it could be hardend,be sure to properly re seal the vapor barrier as if not sealed water may leak into the vehicle causing further damages

SOURCE: My 2001 BMW X5 doors wont open from outside

Hi
You may have broken the door handle inner component, which is a DIY job (£50 or so) you tube has a video on how to remove and replace the “carrier” it is quite tricky but can be done as I have on my 2001 X5 after a hard frost and hevy hands.

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.

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
