Unhappy 2007 335i - Doors won't unlock

Since yesterday the doors on my 2007 335i sedan won't unlock either with the key FOB or the lock/unlock button on the dash.
I can only lock or unlock the driver's side door by inserting the key in the keyhole on the door handle

I read a few posts on this issue and looked in the fuse box.
The fuse map indicates the following fuses for the door locks - 33, 56, 57, 63

The first 3 are 15 amp small fuses (ATM?) and 63 is a 30 amp wide fuse (ATC?)

Slot 33 did not have any fuse in it. The only fuse that was blown was 57 and I replaced it with a 15 amp fuse. I also put in a 15 amp fuse in slot 33 (not sure if this cause any damage or be at most redundant)

But no luck, the non-driver doors just can't be unlocked.
And then I dropped the fuse puller in the fuse box and can't retrieve it :-)
Reaching inside the fuse box is tedious enough and made worse by not being able to open the passenger door.

Any other suggestions before I take it to the shop?

Thanks
V

Its super expensive if you have the shop do it. I paid about $700 for 2 doors.

I was quoted the same by the dealer. The fuse fixed my problem for now but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.

How do you go about replacing the passenger actuator if you can't open the door?

You have to remove the door panel, remove the screw that keep the door actuator in place and just replace. Def a fun DIY, don't spend all that money at stealership or shop.
