    as I had a similar problem with no air from vents, I investigated further on my car and we found no broken stepper motor mount, but the stepper motor did not hold in place with the clips, so we fixed it with zip tie, works like a charm now.
    Have made a youtube on my spare IHKA unit to show how the flaps work

    Default Wish there was a way

    Wish there was a way of installing the replacement arm without having to tear the dash apart

    Ok so how did you do the zip tie repair? Hey my son just landed a 91 325i convertible, know anyone who knows how to modify the electric top to manual?

    fixing broken vent stepper motors

    E36 325i convertible for your son? Congratulations. I also have an E36 M3, 1998 model. Love it.

    For conversion of electric top to manual you might ask on BF E36 section, there is especially one expert called flyfishvt, he owns a 97 328i Vert and knows this best.

    Temporary zip tie fix still works, but next time I am in there I will make a solid metal bracket for the stepper motors on each side.
