Question about 1996 BMW Z3 Roadster
I was told it was the speed control resister. where is this resister located.
Yes it sounds like it, or may have corrosion on the contacts.
It's usually located in the airflow section near the blower motor. Look for wires from the motor going directly into the plastic ducting. The resistor should be on the other side. Usually has screws or a plug to remove it.
Look under the plastic at the end of winsheild.
Remove the 8 clips.
Under drivers wiper arm you'll see the blower with 2 straps.
Un-hook them and remove plastic cover.
Under the blower motor are the resistor coils.
Hold of plastic on top with a pair of pliers and pullout the whole thing.
Search Ebay for a replacement, as there are several sellers offering them much cheaper than the main dealers - unless you want to go down that route.
