front fan motor crapped out

i guess that is the problem. i read the post regarding poor airflow, but i don't have that issue. i have no fan operation in the front. no defrost, nada. rear works fine. i used to have defrost so i am sure something has quit. the blower motor apparently.

i suspect a fuse, but of course BMW in their ultimate new wisdom didn't include a fuse diagram in the manual best i can tell. if there is a fuse diagram, and i have somehow missed it, please tell my dumb ass where to look.

Rear hatch passenger side. Pull off cover. look in the fuse block it should be folded up and placed in the little slots along the side of the block. It is a small white card.

thank you my Canadian brother. unfortunately Denalio my efforts were to no avail. i checked the fuses listed on the white card for the rear board but i was unable to locate the front board in the passanger footwell. i wasn't about to go digging around in there as it looked like the ECU was in there too.

i guess i will wait to hear from my SA.

It should be on the same card. I think one is below the other or on the other side. It's a little confusing, but it is there.
