Question Still need the AC

2001 330ci ragtop... My AC blew freezing forever suddenly two days ago nothing. I get the AC light and I see the fan indicator go up but no blowing. I check that the compressor goes on and off from the switch and it does. I've read here about relays and fuses but can't seem to find what I need for this. Fuse 28 is also ok. Any suggestions or maybe a link to a post I missed? Thanks to all.

Fixed and working perfectly again. FSR was pretty easy to change. Thanks to all.

My FSR only seems to act up when it's over 110 degrease and when I need AC the most. Is the FSR behind the glovebox?

The glovebox needs to be removed but technically it's behind the center console. It's relatively easy to change just kinda tight getting in there. I found a video on you tube that gives a walk through.

I didn't find the part at any of my local stores here in ca. I ordered it from ebay for $65 oem. Took maybe an hour to fix when I followed the video. I had to apply a good amount of pressure pulling out the side of the console to get the vent tube out. And putting it back was a pita until I realized if I lined up the bottom tube the top would fit right in.
