Changed Final stage Resistor today: Now another Problem?

So I replaced my FSR in my 02 325ci today and now I have a working blower motor again BUT in order to get to and replace th FSR I had to disasemble the module that hasthe little metal are coming out of it. Well Ill explain better, I did not disasemble the metal arm All I did was the bottom portion of the unit (black plastic box with electrical wire connected to it) I unclipped the bottom portion of the assembly the part the has the wire connection attached to it and I let it hang by the wire. I had one hell of a time clipping the bottom of the module back into place because there is a tab that spins in a circular motion and it must be perfectly aligned with the top part in order to properly snap back together.
Took me almost an hour to get the two halves aligned and snapped back together.
Well now the little metal arm doesn't move or do anything??? I wondered if you knew exactly what this arm/unit controls or what it's purpose is. Ive already looked on and cannot find a clear definition of what the part is called or used for??
