Post Door Lock Issue? 2006 ML350

I own a 2006 ML350. I recently noticed that the driver side door lock has something wrong with it. When the car is running and I am inside, the lock works fine. However, after I park and get out and try to lock it, all the doors lock except the driver side. When i use my hand and try to push the lock down, it wont go. It feels like its being forced up into the unlocked position. I would normally go to a mercedes dealership to get it fixed, however, the closest one to where I am now is around 45 minutes away and its Saturday. Is there a quick way I can fix this myself? Thanks in advance

Not really. The actuator has likely begun to bind and its easier to replace once than continuously repair it. Do a search for "machine gun lock" for more info.

Gernan Car Door Locks...

As far as I know, all German cars are built that way, you can't lock the driver's door using the push-button in the door, the key is used once driver's door is closed (or by using the remote). Keeps one from locking the keys in the vehicle. Hope this helps... --Jim
