    Evening all, I'm new to the forum, I hope I have posted this in the correct section.

    I have just purchased the above car and have a problem with the heaters. (it is the Digital Climate Control version)

    The fan appears to be stuck on its lowest setting, no matter what I set it to on the display it barely blows.

    After having a look round this forum I suspect it might be the final stage resistor.

    Please can someone advise me?

    If it is this part that is faulty could someone provide a part number or a link please?

    Also, does the Pollen Filter affect airflow in anyway??

    Many thanks in advance.

    Ben

    Here is the link to the parts catalogue for your car...

    http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/E3...M/1996/browse/

    Number 8 on this page is the resistor...

    The pollen filter will affect the airflow but I see on your other thread you are going to do it anyway. Here is the part number....

    ...and here are a couple of guides from the USA.

    Remember they show the filter access from under the glovebox as their cars are LHD, access for RHD is under the steering wheel side next to the clutch pedal
