I drive a 2001 BMW 323 Ci and the door on the driver's side will no longer open. The handle on the inside of the car appears to no longer even be attached to anything and hangs freely being able to go to an open or closed position without affecting the actual lock whatsoever. Considering the locks are controlled electronically by a key less entry I wasn't sure as to whether it is an mechanical problem or simply an electrical one.
Do you

You might need to remove the door panel to access the need for repairs. It sounds like the Bowden cable has come loose or is broken. Let me know what you find out.
