    Auto Electrical Forum
    The blower heater resistor which is supposed to fit my car E30 (64116912633) doesn't fit. my mechanic says that that particular car was a 'changeover' year, meaning that I suppose some of the parts might have been from newer models? the E36 64111393211 64118391749 seems to suggest that it will...

    Hi, Seems my hedgehog is playing up, sometimes the blower works, sometimes not, and when it does it makes its own mind up what speed it will run at! Does anyone know if a reputable supplier other than OEM, and if there is anyone localish to Woking/Guildford who you'd recommend to do the work...

The car has been (it seems) maintained very well, and the front bushes were done just before I bought it. I am, however, a...
  17. Final stage resistor replacement - tool recommendations?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I think I'm going to attempt to swap out my final stage resistor soon. From what I've seen online it seems like it should be ok, but only as long as you have just the right torx driver to get that niggly second bolt out! i.e. long enough, not too long, not too thick, grippy enough handle etc etc...
