Cool Another Satisfied Troller

Elvis, thank you so much for putting up such a detailed explanation with clearly annotated photos. I just replaced the FSU in my 2000 E39 528i with 105k miles on it, but the AC had been acting up for several months. I just discovered your write-up here yesterday. With winter rolling in here in Northern Virginia and a road trip tonight I had to pay the dealer price of $115 yesterday instead of $70 at (part no. 64 11 6 923 204), but it was a pretty easy DIY because of your help.

Parts guy at dealer said this is the number 1 replacement part they sell for BMWs - can you spell "design flaw?"

Anyway, thanks again - nice work. Still helping BMW owners over 18 months after your original post!
