02 330ci key wont unlock the door.. help

my wife drives a 02 330ci. when we got the car the key fob didnt work. no big deal we have just been using the key to unlock the door. now the key will not turn left in the door. it turns to the right smooth as always. it will not turn to the left the least little bit. im not the tallest at 5'8" and 185lbs but crawling through the trunk isnt something i like to do. i pulled a fuse out so the doors wouldnt lock until i can figure something out.
can somebody help me out???????????? ive already posted this on 2 other forums with no help

Check out www.realoem.com for part diagrams. Also, ECS Tuning carries door lock parts and they may have one for cheaper.
