We know our way around Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2012 Audi A3 Quattro A/C systems. Steer your Audi A3 Quattro to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2012 Audi A3 Quattro A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Audi A3 Quattro A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A3 Quattro A/C Recharge

While your 2012 Audi A3 Quattro’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Audi’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2012 Audi A3 Quattro A/C recharges.

Common Audi A3 Quattro A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Audi A3 Quattro A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2012 Audi A3 Quattro? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your A3 Quattro — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2012 Audi A3 Quattro A/C Systems

  • Can I make my A3 Quattro air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What’s making my A3 Quattro A/C put out warm air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your A3 Quattro’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
