My 1995 318i has power door locks, but the driver's door lock is really
frustrating: when sitting inside with the doors closed, it functions
perfectly....push down, and the other three door locks come down and all
doors are locked...pull up, and all door locks come up, and all doors are
unlocked. The trouble is when I try to unlock/lock the doors from the
outside turning the key in the driver's door ( all works fine using the key
in the front passenger's door, by the way)....turn the key either way, and
nothing happens, and I can't leave the vehicle because the damn door won't
lock, and the other doors won't lock.
Now for the heater fan motor: it is loud, and seems to rattle. Is there an
easy way to access the blower motor,without pulling the dash apart, so I
can see if the fan blades are knocking against the housing? I'd also like to
replace the fan motor selector dial...it seems to operate intermitantly, and
with winter near upon us, I know it'll fail on me just when I'll need it.
