I am unable to open the drivers side door from inside the car unless I lower the driver side window.

sounds like the inside handle is broken it is a easy fix, unfortunately the handle for a BMW is normally a dealer part which will make it kind of expensive for a cheap piece of plastic.

Changing the oil on a 1997 bmw 328i

locate the oil pan under the engine and then unscrew the bolt on the pan let drain into an oil drain pan then screw bolt back on tight but not overtight then put in the required amount of oil ( should be in owners manual) and start up ( you can obtain a repair manual book for this car at the library for free, but if you intend to do alot of your work on this car yourself buy one at an auto or book shop)

Lock barrell on the drivers side is broken

you'll need to remove your door panel (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.

I'm not sure what you mean by lock barrell.. I'm guessing the cylinder which you'll just have to bolt back onto the door.. you may need to find a specific bolt though....

BMW 530 ignition problem

when starting the car the starter motor uses a huge amount of current

normal things like lights radio ac dont use that much

most of the time the radio will work but the car will not start

i recomend recharging the battery before you start replacing anything

i amagine that changing the barrel would not be that hard
the hardest bit would be finding a barrel and keys

1997 328i door lock problem

Hi, this sounds like the door barrel may have broken, to check it with the door open you will see a rubber sealing bung about 4 inches above the door catch, if you remove this you will see a 4mm hex bolt inside the door undo this and you should then be able to remove the barrel , this would not be a fuse or an actuator as the system works from the trunk and this works from the same system, hope this is of some help, regards mark.
