I'm reading this with great interest - my 2001 325 has the same
fluctuating fan issue - now I know what it is!!!
So where exactly is this resistor pack and is it diy-able? If the BMW
part is so faulty (as I found out about their camshaft position sensors
too...), does anyone have a replacement recommendation?
I think it's a special part and I've not seen it on sale outside a BMW
It's definitely DIYable on my E39 - it's situated on the bulkhead behind
the heater (it's in the cool air intake to help its cooling) accessible
via the (UK) driver's foot well. You have to remove the carpet strip on
the transmission tunnel and the 'roof' of the foot well. And it's a bit of
a fiddle. A LHD car is probably easier with more room due to no steering
column in the way. But your 3 Series will likely differ in detail.
