There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Audi A3 Quattro A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Audi vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2006 Audi A/C systems. Bring your Audi A3 Quattro to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2006 Audi A3 Quattro’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Audi A3 Quattro A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2006 Audi A3 Quattro, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Audi guidelines. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2006 Audi A3 Quattro A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Audi A3 Quattro A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 2006 Audi A3 Quattro? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your A3 Quattro.
