The beauty of going with an original BMW part is that you have a full two year unlimited mileage warranty on the part (at least up here in Canada). Are you sure the cricket sound is coming from the new blower? Apparently there's also an internal recirculation fan under the dash that can also make the noise. Search around and you'll find it.

HOWEVER, after a month or so of nice quiet operation, i'm getting crickets again. Maybe not as loud as before and the pitch is higher, but its the same noise. Could the new blower be defective? I'm not sure how it could have been fine for a few weeks and is now making noise
