Audi A3 A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Audi A3?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2015 Audi A3 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi A3

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2015 Audi A3’s 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. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Audi A3 A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Audi A3

Let's say we repair your 2015 Audi A3 A/C system. We will also perform 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 all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2015 Audi A3 A/C recharges.

Common Audi A3 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Audi A3 A/C problem you may encounter. 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2015 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. 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.

2015 Audi A3 A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my A3 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 A/C put out warm 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? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your A3’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.
