AC/Heater fan

My 15-yr-old 328ic is losing its AC fan. It has run sporadically for a few weeks, now is totally stopped. So, is it the motor? the connector (resistor?) or both? How tough is it to yank the motor to replace it?

Any suggestions appreciated!

Need some more info from you to possibly assist. Does the car have auto climate control? If so does the control head stay lit up when the fan stops, or does it go dark?

Had to replace the fan in my 1994 318i. Had symptoms like yours. I replaced all the relays and sensors 1st trying to fix but in turned out that the bushings in the fan were worn out and tight. I tested this by gaining access to fan and hand rotated and it would work, but not start on it's own. There are some DIY if you google. It was not an easy job but doable. Might be easier on 4 vs 6 cyl. I was able to remove and replace without breaking the fan off the motor as some DIY said was necessary.
