BMW Z3 door lock repair kit

On the driver and passenger door, the door key lock just spins when you put the key in the tumbler. So you cannot lock or unlock from door. How do you fix the tumbler on a BMW Z3 roaster door lock?

its the dreaded seat rock syndrome, plenty of fixes on the forums, basically you have to replace spacers in set drive mechanism. I did with the help of a friend after ordring bushes and it was quite easy.

SOURCE: 2002 BMW 325 - key locked in trunk

There are several suggestions out there on how to retrieve BMW keys from the trunk. Many of the ways I tried failed, and it takes 2 to 3 days to get a new key made up. In the coupe there is the center piece in the back seat that folds down. Then on the back wall there is material that will fold down that is held up with Velcro. Behind that you will find a rubber insulation that is mostly cut and looks like a door, but not all the way. Carefully cut the rubber to remove the piece. Now you will find a metal wall, but there is a large piece that is tack welded on. I got turned around and kicked it with the bottom of my foot and got 3 sides loose. Then a softball bat knocked the final side loose. Pull that out and trash it, the final barrier is the insulation that is held in place with plastic clips that can just be pushed down. After that you can a pretty large hole to work through and get the keys. Just put everything back in place other than the metal plate and you will never know anything was done.

SOURCE: BMW Power Locks don't work, how much to repair?

Before you bring it to a garage and pay good money check the fuses. Usually its as simple as that (located near the battery in the engine bay)

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1995 BMW 318i: Key does not turn in drivers door

you probly have a siezed lock pin, or the metal flap that stops debris from gettin in the lock is stuck. if you can see inside your lock, then get some WD40, and some lock de-icer, spray the lock with the WD40, and try to put your key in, it should go in. If it doesn't go in, and more backyard style way would be to get a thin piece of metal that will fit in the slot try to gently move it up and down prying on the top and bottom inside the lock. use the metal trick at your own risk, for it may cause damage, i don't recomend it, the Wd40 should work spray it, let it sit for 5 mins, spray it and then try it.

SOURCE: 1997 bmw 328i ignition lock

There is nothing wrong with the lock,,,it is suppose 2 spin around if you do not put the key in correctly.

My 1997 bmw does the same , it is a security measure incase someone breaks into the car and tries 2 steal it by putting a screwdriver in the ignition ,,it just spins.

before putting yr key in the ignition, move yr steering wheel slighty so its not resting on the steering lock , put yr key in and turn , it does not spin

I have a 2004 Honda Civic LX Sedan. My problem with it is one, where you put the in to unlock the car,driver side, won't turn. I know the problem is the key lock cylinder itself, one of the tumblers wont...


To fix the tumblers, find a trusted locksmith. That's the way I'd go. Honda does have a kit, but, it's not a consumer one. You'd spend a decent amount of money on a kit that would fix hundreds of cars, so, that's why they won't sell it to you.

As for the key fob, have you tried putting a new battery in it? Your description is not very clear. The LX should have come from the factory with a key fob. So, if you got one, make sure it's the correct one with a good battery. To program it, put your key in the igntion, turn the key to position 2 (the position right before you start the car), press a button on the key fob, turn the key back to position 0, Repeat these steps over and over (about 4 to 5 times) until the doors lock/unlock. If that doesn't work, you could have a bum transmitter.

If some doors are not lock/unlocking, chances are bad doorlock acuators.

First try lubricating locks with powdered graphite. Avoid ALL liquid lock lubricants. Then work locks through all positions from passenger door. (single lock positions & double lock position) Lastly operate locks via boot lock.

Door wont unlock when i put key in


I believe your problem is directly related to the elecrical contacts in the door key lock itself. I understand that the door locks but wont unlock. If the switch in the lock tumbler it self is not defective you may have other electrical problems in this circuit. do you have the same problem on the passenger door or is it specific to the drivers side only
