Hi FTjoe , the air filter on this vehicle is located under the upper engine covers on the left hand side of the engine. to gain access to this item you will need to remove, the microfilter housing ( held in by 4 x t27 torques screws, upper engine cover (held down with 5 x 6mm hex bolts and the small engine cover a the back of the engine 2 x 6mm hex bolts. remove the air intake trunking that sits on the front slam panel and goes to the air filter housing by meens of a flexi square pipe, once this is removed you will need to remove the air filter cover 5 x 6mm hex bolts, then you should be able to replace the filter, once fitted all removed parts are reinstalled in reverse order, hope this is of some help, regards mark.

Air Conditioning on BMW 3 Series 2003

On this vehicle if the service history is up to date the microfilter would have been changed no more than 15000 miles ago. You may need the help from a garage to check to make sure that the air con system is fully charged, if so it may be the heater control panel it's self that may be at fault. It may be worth a visit to a local specalist or dealer to get the fault memories read but ask for a fixed quote for diagnosis before hand. hope this may be of help.
