Differences with the 2005 325i: One Piece Blower Housing
Okay. There is a difference between the excellent direction which Mr. Cranium gives us above (I will light a candle for you Mr C.) and what can be done with the last year of production e46, 2005 325i. The blower housing is ONE piece and does not separate. This said, I have now taken off the engine rocker cover, and it looks like when the fuel rail comes off that I will have a straight shot at putting the fan in place. For those 325i fans out there, I will post a result here.

Thanks for all the fine suggestions which have come before this point in time.
