I recently bought a 93 325i with 130,000. I have been checking out this forum for a while now and have just signed up as member. There is a lot of awsome respones i have read on a number of topics so i figured i would see maby there is some help out there for me. My issue is that I noticed that the climate control doesn't seem to work very well. when I turn the vent control to the floor or to the defrost position heat comes out. I read that in the defrost position heat will come out regardless. But should heat still come out when it is positioned on to the floor? my legs will get cooked in no time and when its 90 degrees out it is a total bummer. It doesnt seem that any cold air is coming out from down there even with the ac on. When the controll is set for the middle section of the car the ac works great. I am not sure if the would be a computer or relay switch issue or maby just some hoses have popped off. the previous owner said that the ac went out for a while but after 2months he eventually got it fixed. If anyone has any knowledge about this issue i would love some advice.

there is a vent wheel on the center vent. it will have blue on one side and red on the other, select blue, regardless to what you select on the climate controls, if that vent wheel is either hot or cold , thats what your gonnna get.

I have absolutely the same problem with my 94-320i. Both defrost and vent positions blow warm air no matter what the oustide temp is. I always set the blue/red thing to extreme blue, turn the temp control down to the coldest and STILL get warm air coming to the leg area. Seems like a common problem.

thanks for the replys. i already new about the main vent wheel from all hot to all cold. When the ac is on and I turn it to the floor setting the ac only comes out on the passenger side and then the driver gets full heat. I guess it could be my climate console.
