Couple of E39 questions from a new guy.
I recently inherited a 2001 E39, 66k miles
It has two issues that need to be addressed:
(I used the Search feature and found a few similar threads but no direct answers. And I'm not a mechanic so I can't fix this.)
1)The AC/Heater fan (blower) does not work. All control displays seem normal and a trace of cool air can be felt at 25 mph and above. When the controls are cut on, at idle, I can hear a very faint electronic sound almost like switch cycling on behind the steering column or under the hood, canít tell exactly where the sound is coming from or if it means anything.
2) There is bleating sound when the steering column is adjusted.
If a member can give me some advice as to what these might be, and if they are expensive and dealer only repairs, I would greatly appreciate it.
Beyond these two things I love the thing.
