    Do you still have the link? Or at least the proper keyword search phrase for this?

    Would any charger like the Sonicare be enough? How long to place over charger?

    I've only encountered cracking/breaking of the cylindrical pot metal parts that allow the key cylinder to rotate without resistance so the door won't unlock. The parts are included in the eBay kit. I replaced all the old parts with the new ones while it was apart. Then was able to use my original key.
    Search for "bmw e46 lock repair youtube" & you'll find instructional videos. Good luck!
