Hi Everyone,

I am looking to replace my door locks as I just broke one and I want to overhaul them both. Who is selling them new these days? and what is the right part number?

 

51 21 1 880 556?

51 21 1 880 555?

 

Thanks

Hi Nicholas,

 

Those numbers are for the door handle cut to code, which are NLA. The only door handle that is available at this time is the right side and it already comes with a new key:

51216442101

 

You can find it on our website at bimmer.com

 

Thanks,

Max

If it's just the lock cylinder that broke (that's the part into which you stick the key--it turns to lock/unlock the door), you can find an intact lock cylinder and either have a locksmith re-key it to match your ignition, or do it yourself.  

 

I did part of a column on re-keying; drop me an IM and I'll send you a copy.

yeah its just a lock cylinder. I was hoping to get a brand new one just to extend the life of the lock that much more. This is the third one Ive had to fix in 7 years. but yes I would love to see the article.
