I have an 88 735i built in 9/87. The blower motor died on me all together tonight. Before that it only ran on HIGH setting, but it ran all the time no matter where the rotary switch was.. From reading on here and various other forums it seems to me the sword is bad.
For some reason, I thought I smelled a burnt smell after it quit working. Does that still point to the sword? If so
where is the best place to buy a good used/rebuilt one. I've never soldered anything so I just want to replace it. Unless some one wants to fix it for me. :)

I could fix it for you, but I live in Japan
yes, most likely the sword, typical symptoms.
To send it to Japan is too expensive, also considering return shipment.

Re: I could fix it for you, but I live in Japan
Thanks very much for your offer. If you were in the states, I would definitely send it to you. From reading/lurking on this forum for awhile, I can tell you know your bimmers.
I'm trying to get the one on ebay that you posted. I'll keep you posted.
