Inleiding

This repair guide covers replacing the BMW 335xi blower motor at home with just a couple of common hand tools. Blower motors can break for many reasons such as old age, failed bearings, or electrical issues.

You will start by disconnecting the car battery and then proceed through the glove box to the blower motor. To follow these steps you will need a T20 Torx Screwdriver, a 10mm Socket, and a 3/8” drive ratchet. The guide will take you through 6 steps to remove the blower motor. These same steps will be followed in reverse order to install the new blower motor.
