Smile Replaced the FSR

[QUOTE=juicy5;2552930]I use this site all the time and benefit from all the great advise. So here's my contribution....I couldn't find detailed instructions on how to change out the Final Resistor (FSR) so it took me awhile to figure it out on my own. This is definantly a DIY job. All you need is phillips screwdriver, flathead screwdriver, hexhead screwdriver, and a flashlight. The part cost me $111.62 at the dealer. It has been updated from the original design. My symptoms where; started with the blower blowing at variable speeds on it own. Made some wierd noises. Then one day it just stopped working. The lights on controls still worked fine, and I could hear the compressor kicking on, just no air blowing. Before replacing the part, first check the fuses (fuse #50).


Thanks bro! I did 10% of the job & then i got very lucky. A friend of mine just gratuated BMW mechanics school & now works at a Washington, D.C. metro BMW dealer.

Needless to say he hooked me up
.....I'VE GOT A/C Again......
