Just posting this to help a new forum member get some identifying and sourcing a bowden cable for his rather rare right hand drive Alpina B10 3.0 AllRad which is based on the 525iX. https://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/142067-restoration-project/?tab=comments#comment-1523381 I know there are a few 525iX owners and enthusiasts on here so perhaps someone could help him? It seems rhd and lhd cables are different and the rhd is discontinued and not available anywhere at this time. Could a lhd cable be made to fit? There are two new available on ebay.de. Any help greatly appreciated.
My rear offside door had stopped opening and I assumed the actuator was FUBAR. Once I'd got the door card off I realised that the bowden cable from the exterior door handle to the latch had snapped. Can anyone shed any light on whether I need to remove the exterior door handle and cable carrier to replace the cable? The is plenty of info on removing broken door handles and guides to the interior door handle cable but not much for the exterior handle cable only - I'm hoping I don't need to take too much stuff off the car.
