I have the 2005 x3 with the 3.0. I am replacing the blower motor and can't reconnect the metal strap that secures the blower mofor. I tore the end of the strap where the hole is and I had to drill another hole to replace the torn one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

While looking on the web i found what looks like it but it says it called a blower motor shackle clip. Anyway, it's the metal piece that keeps the blower motor in place. It hooks behind the motor and catches on what I'd call a lower lip.

OP, make sure that everything is fitting into the proper slot when you put the blower motor back in. I remember I had to maneuver things around quite a bit in order to get the strap to close. It can really, really look like the blower motor is seated properly, but if the strap won't close, it isn't. Best of luck.
