im glad you where able to figure it out by now..
On the sedan, convertible and coupe, the resistor packet is inside the car, as drescribed above.
on the e36 TI, they placed the resistor packet on the outside, next to the blower housing, you have to take the blower cover out and it should be on the drivers side. us spec..
if some ti owners wants pick of this let me know, i have the BMW TIS precdure pic.
Make sure you plug it well and that it sits back on its place well.
And since you be around the housing i do recommend the replacement of the AC/Heater microfilter. as it is a filter that is commonly forgotten of its replacement, clogging up and not only provideing less air input to the cabin, but also making the blower to work harder...
a new blower unit costs around 300
and if you get the unit on ebay, it will come with the plastic fan attached to the motor's axle. The problem with that is that on 6 cyl cars the replacement of the blower requires that the fins to be deattached from the motor, otherwise it will not clear the intake manifold to able to sit in its place, that is the blower housing underneat the fornt windshield. TIGHT job..
When you get a new parts, the fins will not come attached to the motor, so you can put the motor, then slide the new fins without doing the hard way. Also if doing this job, pay attention, there are two different colored fins, one for the driver, one for the passenger, make sure the new motor has the fins installed the same way..
