Blower Motor

last week the blower motor on 02 325i stopped working. I figured "no problem: blower motor resistor". Put the new resistor in: Nothing. Now, I'm thinking bad motor. After some amount of investigation, I saw the fan turning at around 8-10 rpms. Wasn't turning fast, but it was turning. Off to Autozone for some Electric Contact Cleaner. Sprayed the contacts and motor down real good (emptied the can). Plugged it back in and now working like a champ!
