blower motor not working ('06 BMW 325i)

The blower motor my daughter's 2006 e90 BMW 325i is not working due to a water damage defect with these cars (ah, luxury!). She checked fuse #67 in the fuse box behind the glove compartment. It was good. All dash buttons work: AC, heat, and fan speed indicators light up and respond. However, the blower motor does nothing when the appropriate buttons are pushed. She has learned that it is probably the motor itself, and we are going to pull it from the car to test and probably replace it.

If anyone has experience with this issue and knows something not mentioned already in this post, please share.

We are especially curious whether anyone knows of a fix for the water intrusion through the cowl that some say is behind the blower failure. Would like to keep the next motor longer.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
