Welcome to the club.My fan speed rotary selector doesn't work either,if that is a consolation for you.I have to select all the way to position 4 and then reduce to positions 3,2 or 1 for it to work normally.The airconditioning works normally in all speeds tho,but always the same ritual has to be followed ie pos 4 and then back up to other pos.The actual fix is to have the "sword"replaced or to kludge the sword as desccribed by Chris B.Check the archives.

: I'm trying to fix a problem with the fan speeds in my E34. Problem is that it is an intermittent problem. The first problem is that the fan sometimes blows higher than normal when in the the 0-1 positions. The next problem I have is that it only blows air in position 4.
: I have seen information posted regarding the second problem but I am unable to find where the resistor pack or whatever is located in my car. Can somebody give me more information? If I fix one problem will it solve the other?
