Question E46 Blower Motor Loss of Function

Hi Guys,

Iím looking for some friendly advice. Iíve seen a few threads kicking around wrt blower motors doing all kinds of weird and wonderful things but not an actual thread for loss of function.

In recent weeks my fans have squealed at me a couple of times but more recently Iíve lost blower function completely. Iím pretty stuffed without them at this time of year.

I still have heat and full operation at the controls & fuses look fine.

My Cars a January 2005 E46 320D

Any ideas

Much appreciated

JD

The hedgehogs out of the car, new one comes Tuesday, fingers crossed.

Bloody pain in the arse removing one of the two T-20 torx screws, you can’t get into see it on a RHD vehicle as the steering column and ‘clutch’ pedal…. What’s that I hear you say ;O) get in the way, it’s a blind operation and to get in I had to saw two thirds off the handle of my screwdriver, pinched the wife cosmetics mirror to get a look in… nice!

Any other golden nuggets of info anyone may have, if this doesn’t fix it would be well received
