Just wanted to say it worked for me too! I have a 2000 323I and while it was painful to get in, the pics and DIY was great. thanks a bunch! I can only say that will so many of us having this issue, I really think BMW should step up and consider this a recall item. Anyway, for those of you that need to do this job? My advice:

1 - take the ac tubing off first, it'll make things go a lot smoother
2 - be patient with the FSR, it's being held with a clip only so work it out gently.
