blower motor

  1. F07 Gran Turismo (2010 - 2017)
    Hello guys! I recently bought my first car. It's a 2012 BMW 535i GT Base. The thing only had 55k miles on it over 8 years. It's been 4 months now and it's been running great. I changed the cabin air filter, the engine oil filter, engine air filter and the engine oil. I took the car on its...

    Hi BMW colleagues, My front AC quit on me and im sure its the AC Blower Motor assembly. I want to check the resistance on the resistor attached to the blower motor to discard the issue being the resistor vs the motor itself. What are the resistance readings in Ohms that I should be getting...
  3. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Whats going on guys, new to this here. Would appreciate any help. I have a 1992 325i, heater was working fine the night before and the next morning went to go and start the car up and turn the heater on and no air was coming out. Figured it was acting up, as I started driving you could feel the...

    My air conditioner works for about 12 minutes and then mid drive, a weird noise starts to be heard, as if the air is obstructed. Sounds almost like an electric razor. Car has 161k miles. Perhaps a blower motor issue? Anyone else have this issue? Could it be something other than the blower motor...

    Thx in advance. A few weeks back my AC started to quit on me and and only came on intermittently. A week ago it quit for good. I ordered a new BEHR blower from BavAuto and I replaced it today. Still no Air! I tried turning the air on full (to bypass the FSU). Still nothing What gives? Any...
  6. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey all, First post! I have a 2002 E39, and since I've had it, the aircon has never worked. It seems like the usual problem of the blower not blowing, but the usual fixes don't seem to help. The control panel seems to work fine, but I replaced it to see if that was causing the problem. I...
  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I recently replaced my compressor and my air conditioning was working perfectly for about a month and a half. Then one evening I noticed a strange sound coming from my dash area . It sounded like somebody was holding a playing card up against the squirrel cages of my blower motor. So I have...
  8. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Longtime BMW owner here, and all I can find online regarding the blower motor issues is the final stage unit and or the blower motor. I have already replaced the final stage unit in my car. here is what was and is still happening: Enter Car Brake pedal, start. MAX AC ... Runs for 30-60 seconds...
  9. 7 Series - E23 / E32 (1977 - 1994)
    I am a new owner of a 1993 BMW 740il. The symptoms I had when I first bought her was a very loud squirrel cage when run on max high for the fan setting. The blower would not work at all on any other setting other than the fan on max high. It was also giving off a faint dead mouse smell, could...
  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys first post here after selfishly abusing your amazing knowledge for years. My 1997 328i with 260,000 miles would not be on the road today if it weren't for all of the help from all of you. I really appreciate your problems :) So into my issue. I started having an intermittent blower...
  11. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I am in need of someone to replace a blower motor fan in a 2003 X5 3.0I. E53. I have the fan, but I am unwilling to pay BMX Dealer the ridiculous price to replace it. Anyone know someone in this area?
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey all, I was reading a few posts here about blower motor replacements, but I have a question about my situation. I have as you see in the pics below the wire connecting to the blower motor resistor corroded and a prong on the resistor burnt. I was wondering if it would be ok to clean the...

    Does anyone have experience with the apparently newly designed $40 WB FSU? - APSX WB FSU BMW E39 525 528 530 540 M5 FINAL STAGE UNIT Blower Motor Resistor AC for the BMW E39 1997-2003 5 Series M52 M54 Engines See also: - What is the right brand of FSU to buy for your BMW E39 (1) - How to...
  15. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey everybody I have an interesting problem with my 88 e30. My blower only works on high or full blast setting and i believe that is because the resister pack is kaput but the other day i went to turn on the defrost and a very loud noise occurred. It is equivalent to the noise of a pop can in a...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So at about 140k miles my blower stopped working completely, through research I decided to replace the blower motor resistor. I bought an aftermarket FSU from auto zone and put it in and it worked for a couple of says. Then the speed control stopped working and sometimes it wouldn't blow at...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have been on here for a while now trying to learn as much as I can from all you Bimmerfest vets. The only problem is... It gets a little difficult to decipher ( till its too late) For a beginner like me if What I just learned applies to my 2000 540i (e39) or not. So I'm hoping all will help...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi Bimmerfest friends, My problem is that the blower motor doesn't pump more air if it is set to driver and passenger vents, whether it is AC or heat, (it just works/fan accelerates when speed setting is 1 and 2 = very low air speed, higher fan speed seems to be ignored by the blower motor)...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2002 325 i. I followed the Bentley removal procedures. The problem is there was not enough room to remove the blower motor without damaging the fan blades (disaster). Turns out the motor was bad anyway when i tested it. Now i have two issues in replacing the blower with a use one i...
  20. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I have a 1995 540i and it appears my Blower Motor may be out, does not work on any speed settings. Before it stopped working completely it seemed to be running slower than normal on all speeds. Additionally when it first stopped working, periodically it would come on however that behavior has...
