    wow, i wish i read the pm that GHdirect sent me before i started the job.

    i googled "E46 final stage resistor diy" and got this: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...34&postcount=7

    so sure enough, i removed the glove box, then removed the light in footwell, then removed the torx screws that i could see, then removed the air ducts, then removed half the entire dash under the passengers footwell, then removed the rest of what i could see, and had about 14 screws on carpet and half my dash on driveway.

    could i find this resistor, could i buggery.

    i did another google, only to find out that the glovebox in question was the glovebox on drivers side, you know, the little small one near drivers knee when driving.

    FFS, i took out the panels needed, the torx screws needed, and found the FSU, swapped over, and fingers crossed, when i drove for 20 mins, parked up, and removed key, NO blowers staying on.

    so what should have been maybe an hours job, took me 4 or 5 hours.

    over 5 weeks later, and never a flat battery yet or blowers staying on.

    sounds daft, but air-con seems cooler, maybe it's just in my head.

    cheers guys for the tips.
