Blower Motor Resistor

I recently purchased a Blower Motor Resistor Part no: 64119265892 from a local BMW dealership, but it wasn't the problem with my malfunctioning air conditioning (it was the blower motor). The dealership will not allow me to return the part because it is an electrical component. Does anyone have anyinterest in buying the part from me? I paid $126 last week.

I just posted about this in someone else's thread. Blower motor failure is very common on these cars

For a resistor? Hey post of pic o'that bad boy....I want to see a $126 resistor.

And if you ever have occasion again, Digi-Key.

Never mind - got it. Do I see electrolytic caps inside? Looks like more than a resistor, yeppur. If so, 90%+ chance that's what failed - poss evaporated electrolyte. And they can be replaced for, what, $1?

I had to replace the resistor 3 times on my E46. I thought for sure they would have gotten it right this time around. Guess not...

You have another problem - resistor's a symptom. Log power through the unit awhile - you'll narrow it down.

Check those capacitors. Top's prob scored to release pressure when over-amped....any pop?

Alternatively take 'em out and check ESR. It that's nonsense, consult an electronics guy.
