Replacing the AC Blower Motor and Resistor on '93 BMW 525i Touring

Hi, We have a 1993 BMW 525i Touring Wagon that has been diagnosed with a need to replace the ac blower motor and resistor. Blower motor smelt like it was burning and would come on only for short spurts. I am wondering if this is a job that is very difficult to do? We have been quoted a $925 price tag to fix it and if I can't do it then I think we may have to donate or sell the car. Look forward to any feedback as my wife loves this car and I hate to give up on it. Thanks Gordon

If you remove the a/c board there is a capacitor that goes out alot it is right infront of the blue plug in box. This cost me .99 and fixed my a/c.

Replacing the AC blower motor resistor in most cases cures this problem. The blower motor resistor is located next to the blower motor and the connector is on the outside of the air ducting.

Heat problem in my bmw 1993 525i wagon and my blower are not working

check the fuse for your blower problem if not the fuse could be a conection on the unit or the blower unit has died. as for the lack of heat this could be cos of the blower or fan motor as i call it not working but could also be your thermostat stuck open or a air lock in the water system

My 2001 525i BMW has stopped blowing heat/ac. I had the blower motor replaced 1 1/2 year ago. Could it be a fuse

could be 3 things. The fuse, the motor, or the resistor. Just because it was replaced doesn't mean it won't go bad. It went bad the 1st time. Fuse is more common. As is the resistor, oh and a 4th item...the relay.. Rare for that one to go out though.
