Default E46 M3 drivers door actuator

Hi all,

My drivers side door wont unlock without using the key, my guy had stripped the door and said its the actuator... will any e46 listed item fit or will it be specific for the car model?

As long as it's from a Coupe or Convertible ...a saloon/Compact might fit, but why risk it

Not telling your guy how to suck eggs, but he needs to remove the lock barrel before fitting the new actuator. He may have done so already (hopefully) but it is possible to pull the actuator out without doing, but impossible to refit one with it still in place ....without breaking it anyway
