Ok....who has had to replace their blower motor. I've got under 63,000 miles and it appears I've got to replace this or a part of the blower motor---final stage unit :dunno: At first the fan speed would change on its own and now no fan at all. Of course now that we're starting to reach 80 degrees and going into summer...no AC means no fun.
Any comments?

I had mine replaced twice under warranty. Given the location of the part and the available writeups, I would recommend this as a DIY for almost anyone.

Has that particular component been upgraded or superceded over the years? Sure looks like a weak link.

Replaced my FSU as well. My old unit looked quite a bit different then the replacement unit. When I inquired, the BMW parts counterperson informed me that this is the *latest* design of this part. Obviously, a known problem in this forum and BMW.
