does anyone have this TSB or can let me know what it is refering to? Sounds like if the filter isn't sealer properly, water can get down inside the housing. Will BMW fix this under the TSB?
The TSB is not related to the blower design issue. The TSB Deals with reassembling the cabin airfilter housing where if not done properly can let water in the cabin. The blower fails because water drips down the shaft.
