They note that the handle pulls normally, but the door will not open. The common problem is that the inner handle mechanism breaks and does not transfer the outer pull handle's motions to the latch release cable.

The cure is to replace the inner handle mechanism. We have seen customers' shop quotes for hundreds of dollars to replace the inner handle mechanism. And more than just a few incorrect parts replacement quotes (quotes to replace the incorrect parts).

Since one of our purchasers had an X5 with BOTH front door handles inoperative, Otto decided to have a look and see just what the problem was and determine if the replacement is a reasonable DIY task. We found that the inner handle mechanism was indeed the culprit and the repair is no more difficult than the common window regulator replacement. Come on along as we show the steps for replacing the X5 inner door handle mechanism on a 2004 x5 3.0i. All E53 x5 models (00-06) will be as shown in this video.

Note that you may wish to order a few new inner door trim panel securing clips. It is very common that some of the clips will break, or already be broken from a prior door panel removal. We replaced six clips on the door panel shown in this video. Additionally, if you find that the vapor barrier panel is ripped or damaged, this should be replaced to prevent water entry to the cabin. Bavarian Autosport stocks the clips, vapor barrier and the vapor barrier adhesive as well as the handle mechanisms.
