1990 325IC BMW Door Latch Driver Side
On my BMW in order to lock the Driver Side Door I have to turn the key to the right and lift up the door handle in order for the Door Pin to go down and lock the door. Then to unlock the door I turn the key to the left and the Pin goes up and the door opens.
My BMW has an automatic locking system but it doesn't work-Older car syndrome!!
I had someone look at the problem and they said I needed a brand new Latch. Does the Latching System come with a new Lock?
It seems to me all I need in a new Lock instead of a new Latch, BUT I don't know that much about what is in behind the lock and how it all works inside the door. Something connected to the Lock has broken that is attched to the mechanism that pulls the Pin Down and locks the door. I THINK.
Can someone please explain to me how the Latch system works on my BMW. A new Latch costs over $ 200 and another $ 200 for labor. OUCH!!
How hard is to get a used Latch and a used Lock and put them in (I would have to have the new Lock Re-keyed to my key of course.
