Question about 325i Repair kit lock cylinder left. Door handle front/lock/key
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.

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.

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.

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.

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
