When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Audi A3 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2013 Audi A3 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi A3
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2013 Audi A3 A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Audi A3 A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
Let's say we repair your 2013 Audi A3 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 once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2013 Audi A3 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Audi A3 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2013 Audi A3? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your A3.
When you’ve got car A/C problems, don’t sweat it. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, our technicians are qualified to diagnose issues and repair your 2013 Audi A3 A/C system. Beat the heat and come in today for a refreshingly easy A/C performance check.
