    The heater blower on my 530D Msport touring has stopped working. I want to check the fuse (76), according to the tab card on the fuse box in the glove compartment but I can't find it anywhere. Any ideas?

    Usually the tab card will say where the other number fuses are(or may be owners manual ), you looked in the boot on the drivers side behind the pull down panel?

    Not in the boot Ronnie. Fuse 75 (50A fuse for the aux fan) and fuse 76 (40A for HVAC blower), are located above and behind dash. They barely visible looking up from the driver's footwell. Something must have really gone wrong for a 40A fuse to blow

    Good work Neil

    It could also be the FSU(final stage unit) playing up, otherwise I expect the motor has seized if the fuse has indeed blown

    Thx guys, I'll have a look probably next weekend now. Start with the fuse and work my way back but it could be the FSU. Fortunately I 've already found an article on how to replace that. Dave
