How do you get the $#?!@ blower fan out of an E36?
My blower fan is dying (not the blower fan resistor, already checked that). I got the car disassembled all the way down to where the fan was disconnected and ready to remove, but I couldn't get it out of the small space it's in! I didn't want to risk damaging the squirrel cages to get it out. I just can't see any way to get the thing out, unless I'm missing something very obvious... I have the Chilton manual which is not very big on pictures for this, they just say 'remove the fan'. Ha.
So, how you you get the fan out of the car without busting it up?
