We know our way around Audi vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2016 Audi.

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

A3 Sportback e-tron A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron, 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Audi's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C recharges.

Other Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too.

And smelly A/C in a 2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed.

2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my A3 Sportback e-tron air conditioning colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my A3 Sportback e-tron 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 can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your A3 Sportback e-tron’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
