    hi guys

    i know this has been done lots of times and theres plenty of threads about it.

    i currently have a 2001 320d touring and the heater has started playing up.

    i have bought a replacement fsu resistor and am going to attempt to fit it tomorrow.

    i have seen a few video's of how its all done but i just want to make sure on its whereabouts.

    is it fitted on the drivers side of the centre console under the dash?

    any tips or info on help would be much appreciated.

    thanks mate.

    will give it a go tomorrow.

    not looking forward to it as im not as agile as i used to be years a go.

    is it worth removing the drivers seat?

    What symptoms are you getting with the bad fsr that you are going to replace?

    was working fine then stopped and now stays on low speed and can't adjust fan speed.

    went in to local bmw specialists today and there 99% sure its the fsu.

    i asked them if it could be the blower unit itself and they said they have not changed a blower unit for over 5 years in any bmw.

    they also said its normally the fsu that packs up.

    got the new fsu fitted this afternoon and heater now works as it should.

    the one i took out didn't have any screws holding it in so it was easy to remove and fit the new one.

    the one i removed had a date on it feb 2010 so i guess thats either when the part was manufactured or sold.

    any way im happy ive got my heater back.
