Question about BMW 325i
Your BMW uses a blower motor resistor to control the speed. It is located on the passenger side of the heater/ac case near the firewall. If you are laying in the passenger front floor and look to the left and approximately 4 inches from the firewall and 2 inches above the carpet, you should see a connector with five wires. The resistor is held in the heater box by a plastic tab about a inch long. depress the tab downward and remove the blower resistor.

Hi. And welcome to FixYa. You need to remove the glove box door, and then you can get to the blower motor. 3 screws holds it in. Easy to remove.
A FIxYa rating for my assistance (4 blue diamonds) would realy be appreciated.

most likely its the blower motor resister and is located behind the glove box. there are a few philips head screws you will need to remove inside the glove box and under the glove box to get the glove box out after that it should be a walk in the park

It's simple!...Open glove box door...youll see a plastic shell that is the glove box rear portion. You should find 4, 9/32nds or 7mm (same thing just SAE or Metric) screw heads. Undo four screws and with a flat blade screw driver, gently pry out on shell at either side to clear the door straps. Once clear, just work out of resting place, set aside. You will now see like 5 relays mounted on top of the air handler. Remove bracket that holds four of them + one that is mounted alone. Pull out of the way. Checking both inside and outside, remove all screws, bolts, nuts as it were, until it is obvious there are none left. Now, this is assuming this is where your problem lies! If you are simply having a blower problem, it might be the blower module mounted right beneath and just behind relays on top of air handling box. Just take your time so you dont break anything. Good luck...theroad......

It is behind your glove box. You have to make sure when take out the glove box be careful of the tabs and also remove the wire on the side. You will see a black box with a a bunch of wires coming out of it. You need to disconnect that mess of wires and remove the two screws that are holding the resistor in the box. Remove it and put the new one in. Be care not to bend the coils all up on the resister. Hope this makes sense, keep me posted, be glad to help.

Motor is also energized by a relay. check that and also check that the motor itself is good by running a hot lead right to it. I'm sure you already checked the fuse and know the switch is good?
