Whistle Any help with the back door/quarter window?

Hi All- this is a great write up and pretty straight forward. I am the 1,000,000,000th victim of this BMW crime against windows and doors. MY problem however is it is the back door. This write up shows the front door being opened with the the wire. ANYBODY had any luck with the back door and getting around the quarter window once the rod is inserted into the door?

To belabor the facts, my locking pin on my back driver's side door pops up and down when the central locking unit is depressed, the window is fully operable, but I cannot open the door. I cannot even access the panels to get into the door because (obviously) it is shut closed. Any ideas / advice / thoughts are welcomed.

Thanks

PS- Huge fan of this site and all that contribute.

I have the same problem too! Any ideas how to open the rear door to fix the issue?
I have a baby sitting in the car seat and its hard for the mother to try to climb up the car seat in order to enter/exit the car.
thx

I haven't tried yet because it appears you cannot access the bottom of the door/panel to get to it without major damage to the panel (cracking, breaking, etc...). The trim piece where the inside door handle can easily be removed, but any help/suggestions on the rest would be great.

Just finished!!
Here it goes..... U will have to open the door somehow. I tried by locking and unlocking with remote and at the same time pulling the outside handle. After 5-6 times the door opened up and I was free and clear to do the cleaning and greasing.
When u take all the screws necessary and the side curtain if u have one, the u will feel that the door panel is been stuck in its place somewhere in the middle top of the door. Just grab the panel and pull out and towards up. There is a clip right in the middle of the door holding it. U cannot access it by hand. Then after u take the door panel out u will see that middle clip in the middle. Right on top of it there is a plastic surround piece. Take it off and apply it to the door panel for easier installation back together. The rest, how to take out the door lick mechanism just follow the other guys instructions in this post. Same apply for the rear doors too.
Good luck!

OK

OK - Thanks. Just to be clear though, you (1) First were able to open the door by utilizing the lock/unlock feature and essentially getting lucky, not by accessing the panel? Then, after getting the door to fortunately unlock, and then open, you were able to access the door panel and work on greasing the carrier? Let me know if I have that correct or not at your convenience and thanks.

Yes, first I managed to open up the door, and then I pulled out the door panel, as there is no way you can pull off the door panel with the door closed.
I hope that will work for u too. Lock/unlock with remote one one hand and the other trying to open the door from outside. I didn't try do that from inside just in case the door pull handle may brake. But u can try inside and while u pulling the door pull, try to push against the door to open!?
Let us know what happen. Good luck
