    Some people make a big production out of tearing their entire under dash area apart (like in the link I gave below) - but that isn't necessary and a waste of time, that is if you lie on your back on the floor and look up to the tranny tunnel where it meets the firewall to access it. All I did was take the bottom dash cover off - that's all. It only took me 10 minutes

99 323i replaced blower motor and resistor seemed to work fine until idle then temp gets cool

Sounds like your thermostat is stuck in the open position this does'nt give the coolant enough time to get hot in the engine.

Heater won't warm up - no pressure from blower. Warms slightly when on windscreen but then cold when control changed to heat inside car. Had new radiator last year - seems ok but I do have to top up water...

You're losing coolant. You're not supposed to. could be a leak could be a head gasket. Head gasket=very expensive. Leak=hard to find.
No pressure from blower.....means air pressure or flow? Replace the control resistor for the blower motor. When it goes the motor only operates on high. If the motor doesn't operate on high, replace the blower motor.
Move to Fla, Houston, So Cal or Ariz for an ultimate fix of the problem.

Heater blower not working

It sounds like your cabin air filter has stopped up common problem on these cars. You have to remove the glovebox to get to it. If this filter stops up, your fan will be running on high but hardly anything will come out of the vents.

2001 BMW 330i..Fan for AC/vent not working?

it's either a fuse or it's a bad blower motor, it could be a bad blower motor resistor but usually you'll get either high or low only, so if you have nothing on any speed, high low etc, and all the fuses are ok chances are it's your blower motor.

Faulty Heater Fan

I would check the blower motor resistor. The resistor slows the current going to the blower motor to make the fan run slower for the first three speeds.The high speed runs of full battery voltage.I hope this helps.
