DIY - HVAC Blower Motor Replacement

As the E39 is aging gracefully...., the HVAC Blower may fail. Symptoms are noisy blower motor, worse with higher speed.

The good news it is all within the scope of a Saturday mechanic using common tools.

---> 03/2000 PN 64118372493 approx. $125
03/2000 ----> PN 64118385558 approx. $125

Prices are from: http://www.autohausaz.com.

Go through all the pictures which are from BMW T.I.S., used by BMW mechanics.

The bottom line is the dash top lining needs to come out first. Budget about 3-5 hours for this job (depending on your skill levels and whether you are drinking a 6-pack when doing this job!).
