Audi A3 A/C Repair

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 it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Audi A3 A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 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 2018 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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Audi A3 A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A3 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2018 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Audi's recommendations. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2018 Audi A3 A/C recharges.

Common Audi A3 A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Audi A3 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 2018 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 technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your A3’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2018 Audi A3 A/C Systems

  • Can I make my A3 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.
  • Why is my A3 A/C blowing hot 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.
  • 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.
