Hi guys, I bought an E53 with an intermittent passenger front door handle not always opening from the outside. Took it apart and noticed the carrier behind the handle had been replaced once before. Put it all back together as it looked fine but still with the same issue. I have heard that sometimes there is some play in the actual link between where the cable attaches and the lock mechanism in the side of the door. Is this true? I reassembled the door before hearing about this, didn't know if it was worth replacing the lock but not been  able to see one on ebay, only the carriers seem to be on there.

I had a problem like that and it turned out to be the bowden cable starting to fray and not letting the mec go back into place.
