Pretty easy to install and worked great.

I got two parts (that looks like mirror image to each other in the picture) for passenger side only, and I am missing the driver side.

It is a great product and recommend this purchase for folks with an inoperable lock.

This is a great little kit to fix a common problem with the E-46. Everything fit well except the spring. I ended up using my old spring. Theirs was too stiff.

I have had 35 year experience restoring old sports cars and motorcycles and feel I am pretty good at it. What I thought would be an easy half hour fix took me 1 hour to finish. I had a lot of trouble winding the spring back and ended up using my old spring that was shorter.

This kit comes with no directions but there are some good u-tube videos that really help, the first will tell you how to remove the lock from the car, just type in the words “remove e-46 door lock” the second will help you with taking the lock apart. Just type in “E46 E90 Door Lock Repair Kit DIY Tutorial”

Also remember the door will not lock when it is open! I would have saved 10 minutes if I had remembered this.

I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because of no directions, and a spring that is too long.

I just ordered my part today on May 3, 2013 at 2:50 P.M. so I have not received my part and so my issue with Regulatorfix and their website is their lack of a contact phone number. Also, I ordered my E46 Door Lock Cylinder and chose the Expedited shipping for 24 hours. Well instead of the shipping information saying 24 hours, it says my order will arrive on May 7th or May 8th? Heck no, I paid an extra $24 dollars for shipping in ONE DAY. Why are they charging me 24 dollars for shipping that is the same as the basic shipping costs? I know nothing goes as planned but if my part takes 3 to 5 business days when I paid 24 dollars, Regulatorfix had better expect me to complain.

I heard from friends that Regulator fix is reliable when it comes to parts and shipping but I did not expect to be ripped off by shipping costs.

I will edit my review later because maybe I am taking this complaint the wrong way.

**UPDATE**

Okay I took apart my door and labeled my parts. There are no instructions which caused me plenty of frustration. Make sure you lubricate the parts inside the lock. My door works now just hope it holds up.

Delivered on time with all the components as advertised however, the new spring is not as strong as the original but does the trick. I would suggest sticking to your old spring if it is sill in good condition. But... what really made me give this 3 stars is that the long "shaft like" part is shorter than my original and therefore could not reach the mechanism internally to lock and unlock the door.
Luckily my original was still in good condition and i reused that also. Everything else was fine.
I have a 2001 BMW E46 320i (Euro Right hand drive)

The components fit perfectly and appear to be made to a similar standard as oem. This is a cheap fix but be warned, if your not mechanically incline, get someone else to disassemble and reassemble as the process is arduous for even the skilled.

It is not perfectly OEM - you have to work with it to get it into position, and it does not feel as solid as a brand new lock. But it DOES work and I did not have to pay $150 for a new lock.

Good product overall. The spring I received must have contained cheap metal because it broke relatively easy, had to use my original one. It was a good fit and did the job

The spring snapped so I had to use the original spring that was already in the lock. The lock did nave a broken clip and the clip in this packet was just the fix. It is a great product and recommend this purchase for folks with an inoperable lock.
