My M3 convertible (E36) has a bad passenger door lock actuator. It won't lock when I arm the car, and won't unlock when I disarm the car. it won't toggle when I press the little lock button on the car's center console. I don't hear it trying to actuate the lock either. No sound coming from it. I'm looking for advice on where to start looking. I checked the fuses under the hood as a 1st step, and haven't looked or checked elsewhere yet. If it is the actuator (and I heard this is probably what it is), can I get the actuator out of the door w/o having to remove the window? I got myself the Bentley manual, but it doesn't talk about the door lock actuator AT ALL. Weird.
thanks in advance.
