Are you sure it's actually the blower motor? most of the time when the blower stops working, it's not actually the blower, but the blower resister, which is located above the transmission tunnel directly to the right of the gas pedal. I got mine from ebay because it was $45 instead of $89 from bavauto.

When you pull the resister it may or may not show outward damage, on mine the plastic around the contacts was all melted. If you're sure it's the blower itself, it's located behind the engine. you have to take off the windshield wipers and under the hood cowl cover at the base of the windshield.
