e38 door lock trouble

I only recently aquired a 1995 BMW 740il. The drivers door suddenly stopped working. It locks and unlocks without allowing entrance or exit. That went on for two weeks and now the passenger side has started the same behavior. The key works the windows so I can climb in and out but it is not at all classy! Any wisdom?

The door needs to be taken apart and the mechanism needs replacing.

Be warned, this is a labor intensive job.
