Hi hope my post is in right place with correct etiquette.
I have 1997 e36 318i. Am using key number 3, as previous owners have lost all other keys. First drivers door lock stoped working. (all locking and unlocking done manually now) then passengers door stopped, then boot lock failed. All locks lock simultaneously when i sit in car and push down drivers side door button so that seems to be ok. I suppose all the locks have failed mechanically one by one? Was using some lubricant for a time which helped open and lock doors however that doesnt work now. The key doesnt even turn any longer in the door lock. Is this fixable ie can i replace inner workings of the lock without needing new key?
p.s. am hoping to buy replacement fob for my after market spyball alarm system.. may or may not still be working.. poor auld bimmer really needs some tlc at this stage!! .
Any help much appreciated. thanks
