Both doors seem to have problems! First I can only get out of the car and lock the driver door. however i cant unlock it to get in. I have to go to the trunk or the passenger door to unlock it. Then the passenger door is not that easy to lock, i have to play with it a litttle ( move it around)

I heard this could be a problem with the door actuators but not sure. So what is the problem and can i fix it myself or is it exstensive?? OH and how much for parts? and where to get them

Help asap!! please

I have the exact same problem, and it makes me look bad, i come from a country town in Australia and i have a done up BMW and to get in it, i have to leave the window down to reach in, or jump in the back seat to open it, so frustrating. If you find out any more info on this can u email me
