    Replacing a failed heater blower motor is a major job on this car (over 6 hours). The usual problem (BMW have a technical Service Bulletin SI B640899 issued JULY 2004) there is a new improver blower motor resistor or what BMW call a blower motor final stage resistor located in the right footwell area. It takes about .6 hour to replace. Check fuses first then perhaps look to find an independent BMW specialist in your area.
