Just bought a '99 Z3 2.5 stick last Saturday and am lovin' it. Owner's
manual shopping on eBay as we speak (have you seen the prices for
them?!!) and am sittin' in the dark here...
If you experts could be so kind as to answer a couple questions for
me, that would be great. Hope I'm not in violation of the FAQs or
anything about the group. If so, my apologies.
1. After an hour or two sitting, hot or cold, for about a minute
after start up, there is a "whirring" sound, like a blender on puree',
that lasts for about 60 seconds (same length of time, each time). The
offending unit is in the upper left hand corner of the engine bay.
What the hell is it? Is hearing it typical? A pre-heater of some sort?
2. As soon as I blast the fan blower, through the face vents, the
middle vent control's on/off/flow wheel slams itself shut.
grrrrr.....any suggestions (besides black electrical tape to hold it
open ;-) ?
