Final Stage Resistor replacement

Hi Guys,
Wondering if you guys you recommend a shop that I could take my 325i to get the Final Stage resistore replaced. I was thinking of buying the part from Town & Country and then getting someone to do the replacement.

Thanks,

It is about 2/10 to do

Thanks Guys, I'll give bimmersports a call to find out the cost for doing the swap.. and if' its like 40$ I think it's well worth saving a hour of work.

Thanks for the link Airbalancer...seems easy enough...but I bet you have to contort your back to get in there...
I'm hoping 1 is easy on your scale of 1 to 10

The Heat blower is going crazy and running at the highest speed. After much reading it seems it's the final stage resistor, which need replacement.

For an old guy like it was hard, and had a hard time seeing thing, pain to be far sight
For $40 it would be a deal

2 good places to go to are charlie @ bimmersport and rocco @ RMP. If you're gonna have charlie do the work, call him up, i bet you he gets better prices from the dealership than you do
