Question Automatic Climate Control prob

Just wondering if anyone knew anything about the auto climate control....The problem i have is that the speed at which the air comes out of the vents is constantly on wide open, even when varying the controls. Is it a simple fix, or is it a little tougher than i think????

Check the final stage resistor it is a common problem on e46. Do a web search or search the forum archives on "final stage" and im sure you will have plenty of results. Also check www.bmwtips.com there is a write-up there for AC musty odors which involves removing the final stage to access the heater case. this should help if youre planning on doing the job yourself.
