A/C Service for Audi A3 Quattro

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Audi A3 Quattro A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2016 Audi A3 Quattro A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi A3 Quattro

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2016 Audi A3 Quattro A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use 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 detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A3 Quattro A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2016 Audi A3 Quattro A/C system. We will also perform 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 after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2016 Audi A3 Quattro A/C recharges.

Common Audi A3 Quattro A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Audi A3 Quattro A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes 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 2016 Audi A3 Quattro? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your A3 Quattro — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 2016 Audi A3 Quattro A/C Systems

  • How can I make my A3 Quattro air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my A3 Quattro A/C blowing hot air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your A3 Quattro's A/C system.
