AC only works on full blast

Could there be some kind of clogging? Is it a simple fix? Heater and Ac only work on full blast for some reason

Any comments appreciated!

its a failed resistor, but you have to find out which you have.
For there are two which are allegedly year dependant. (I found not to be true from 1989-1993.5)

You have either a final stage resistor sword or a resistor pack.
Both are completely different and are located on different sides of the center console.

The easiest to replace is the resistor pack.




It's located above and to the right of the accelerator pedal.
You'll have to remove the lower kick panel and carpet panel on the center console to see it.

The sword isn't so easy to replace but easier to check.
It's located behind the center console, behind the Hvac / heater core box on the passenger side.
You can remove the carpet from the center console to check. It will look like this.




To remove it you'll have to remove the glove box. For you don't have enough room down there to just pull it out.

So you think its more worth it to find the resistor I need, and replace it myself?

Unless you have a healthy trust fund, you need to learn how to fix this car. Look at your list already... You still haven't gotten to doing the suspension front and rear or a complete cooling system. You CAN do all of these things yourself. MSD even provided pictures, you really have no excuse for not fixing it now

thumbs up for helping snow and MSD.....Dionte we've all been there, first car, tight budget, etc......the first thing I always did with any used car purchase that I was planning on keeping was to buy the best manual you can, in the case of BMW's its called Bentley...new they're about $60, but might check ebay....between that book and the helpful guys here (yh Ive seen the burns on other forums, especially towards noobs) you should have your car running strong in no time.....
