Try to see if you can get the passenger seat out, this will allow you to get the door panel off enough.

Have you worked out if its the lock or if its the door handle either inside or outside ? Any fault codes stored for the door lock module ?

It is the lock actuator. Both handles are fine but ordered a Bowden cable anyway. I have not plugged it in yet but tim is being an amazing help. Will try and nip to his place this week

YAY thanks to Tim the car has all now been fixed. Went to see Andy at MSC. 1 hour 30 mins later and we have a working door! I bought the actuator and Bowden cable already but really nice guy! New place for the BMW to go now.

Now time to carry on polishing

The actuator broke inside. It is sort of a cog system with hydraulics in. Im sure Tim can elaborate on how it works. What Andy did was get a air drill and go through between the door drilling out the mechanism which released the door.
