Bring your Audi A3 Sportback e-tron to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2018 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 suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. 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 system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your A3 Sportback e-tron

Let's say we repair your 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron 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 use Audi’s specifications to evacuate the system. 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. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C recharges.

Common 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. Typical A/C problems also 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. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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.

2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my A3 Sportback e-tron 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.
  • What’s making my A3 Sportback e-tron A/C put out warm air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? 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 Sportback e-tron’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
  •  Does the A/C in my A3 Sportback e-tron use gas? Your A3 Sportback e-tron’s A/C uses some power from the engine to run. So, while your air conditioning system may not directly use gasoline as a fuel source, using the A/C can indirectly affect your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
  • Why does the A/C in my A3 Sportback e-tron smell like vinegar? Moisture can accumulate on your vehicle’s A/C system components, creating the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. As this bacteria grows, it can cause the air conditioning system in your A3 Sportback e-tron to have a vinegar-like smell.
  • What is causing my A3 Sportback e-tron’s A/C to only work when the car is in motion? If your A/C only works when the vehicle is moving, there could be a problem with part of your A3 Sportback e-tron’s A/C or electrical system. Potential issues include low coolant or a faulty cooling fan.
