    Need some advice from people who have DIY'd AC evaps, heater cores, or had the heater box behind the dash out. I have an issue with my 2002 330i where the floor vents never really worked. I pulled the stereo to get a closer look today and found a previous owner of the car or horrible backwoods...

    My car has been sitting recently and I noticed after starting the car and letting it sit and warm up for a few minutes that when I turn the heat up, no air blows out. I turn up the fan speed and can hear it get faster but still no air, all vents are open. I have no clue what the issue could be...

    Now that the seasons are changing, my wife was observing that although she can get heat from under the dash and floorboards when she selects it, the dash vents only vent cold air when both vents are simultaneously selected. My question is this: Is the system working correctly or should heated...

    Hello, I just ordered a double din radio for my e46 out of 2002 however I was wondering if there is a possibility to print a "frame" to relocate the hvac unit instead of buying a whole relocation kit. Would this be possible? I can't imagine a reason why it wouldn't work/fit. Has somebody done...

    Hey folks, My '02 325xi (170k+) runs down the battery overnight. Happened twice in the last 6 months, and began doing it consistently last week. My best guess is the Final Stage Resistor. When it happens, it appears to drain to the same level and stop no matter how long the car has been left...

    Hi all, For some time I have no fan at all, so no windshield blower against condensation, which is a problem here with much rain! I'm talking about my 2001 320xi. So, I pulled out the FSU today and did ohm and volt readings as suggested. But there's no real comprehensive guide I think. I...

    Hey there guys I'm hoping somebody can help me out with this: My LCM went out a couple months ago, and just got around to replacing it a few days ago with a used one with the same part number, and everything works except perhaps the vertical aim. I plugged my car (325Ci) into my computer to...

    Hey all, so this summer I had to replace my HCV because it was stuck in open (it was also burning the fuse, as soon as I dropped a new one in... blown), and living in Houston Tx, AC is a must. Worked like a charm, cold air was finally blowing! I set the climate control to max and bled the...

    Hello once again, I've noticed this problem since I got the car, but since the weather is actually nice today it is getting to be really annoying. When I turn the key to the on position, the one after accessory, the climate control turns on and the fan goes to the last speed I left it at when I...

    Have an issue with the HVAC on my 2000 328Ci (180K miles) - In heat mode - set on auto, gets to set temp then after 10 mins or so start getting cool air coming in (30 degrees outside), have to continually (every 10 mins or so) raise the temp 2-3 degrees to keep heat coming in. In a/c mode -...

    Ever since I bought my car my a/c hasn't blown cold. I assumed it needed a recharge, so I took it in and the mechanic said the freon has good pressure and the compressor is working. I've heard a lot about the heater control valve so I just replaced that and it's still blowing warm, but it does...

    Ok, so I finally decided to replace the OEM headunit with an aftermarket one. I'll be using the centered OEM fascia plate... ...so I will need to remove the radio carrier bracket and Dremel off some plastic to make the new headunit fit. Following the excellent DIY guides of HVAC relocation...

    Hi All, I've done some searching and see that I'm not alone. This is a 2003 325iT that I recently bought, and now that the weather is heating up, the smells coming from the AC is overwhelming. I recognize the musty odor, but there is also a urine-like smell that comes and goes, and that's what...

    I know theres tons of threads on the a/c and heat in our cars, but I havent found any that really match my issue. My heat and a/c went out over this past summer, and since then, the only time there is anything blowing is heat, and it seems to blow at different rates depending on the speed I am...
  19. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Ok so for the past 2 weeks I've been driving around with no a/c trying to figure out what has been failing in the entire A/C system. First was the A/C condenser fan module, thought that was bad because the fan was spinning backwards, so i replaced that and it still did the same. Once replace...

    I've been working on a double din radio install. I disconnected the climate control box to relocate it in the lower section. Now when I connect it the screen on the control box is dark, and the blowers run at full blast with full heat. I haven't checked yet for a blown fuse. I'm hoping...
