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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi A3 Sportback e-tron
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron’s 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” 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 detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron’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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Audi guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Audi A3 Sportback e-tron 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 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. And smelly A/C in a 2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron? 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 Sportback e-tron.
