How do i replace front door lock actuator?

Thu Jan 28, 2021 5:45 am


I am new to the forum but have been an I3 owner for 4 years.
I have a 2014 battery only car.

To open the driver side door when locked, requires using the physical key from the fob to open the door. The actuator appears to be broken and it makes an extra clunk noise when locking the car as though something is loose or broken. There is quite a bit of information online regarding using the key to open the door which means i can keep using the car but i would like to replace the lock.
I can't find any information about this online. I assume the interior door panel and exterior skin need to be removed.

Any suggestions links 'how to' guides would be much appreciated

Many thanks
