Low fan output

So, back in august before I drive from texas to wisconsin and back, I have my system checked. I refilled the A/C because it was low, but the guys at BMW said my motor fan output was low or something along the lines. It blew air from the vents great, but this past week or so it's been blowing really low or none at all. When i drive air comes through.. yay.

so i have looked but maybe i'm searching the wrong thing. What do i need to do to replace this. is it a fuse? the fan motor? is it difficult? other than that, i love driving my car.

thanks for the help everyone.

Have you changed your cabin filter recently? Or at all? That can make a HUGE difference.

In my '95 the results of changing the cabin air filter was a little disappointing, but it was gross and it helped so I was still glad I did it. I just don't think E36's can blow air like the E30's could.
