Looks like the labor guide pays around 8 hours of labor and the blower motor is 270.00 I dont have a listing for the resitor though. If there are any problems after the work, have them go back until they get it right. If you have any worries, go to a BMW specialty shop or dealer, they are familiar with them and would probably be more likely to get it together correctly

Jack old buddy, I dislike contradicting you but the fan blower and final stage controller is only about a 3 hour job according to BMW warranty time, so maybe 4 hours to get the dash cap off, replace the fan and the final stage and reassemble, I did one today in a bit over an hour and a half start to finish, it does help if you have done it several times! If you do the repair, replace the final stage and the fan motor as a set, trust me on this.

Not a problem Doc, rather be corrected than the wrong info going out. In my defense I did look it up in Mitchell. Lol

If Mitchell or All Data were close, I would have not said anything. At my work I find All Data to be too generous at times and Mitchell too, I think they are using Motor to guide them and it is not doing this industry any favors. No wonder folks think car repair is a rip off.
