Blower/fan does not work for air conditioning or heater on 2003 BMW 325i

The blower/fan does not stay on when I try to use the air conditioning or heater. It came on for an instant and then doesn't work again. Can you tell me what repairs may be needed? Thank you in advance.

The blower regulators go bad on these BMWs. We do them a lot. Price is $265.50 plus tax, installed. It takes about an hour and a half to do the work. We can do it while you wait. Call for appt.

Just like European Motorsports said, it's a very common problem. They gave you a good price. Look them up if you are in the area. Zee
