Audi A5 Quattro 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 it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Audi A5 Quattro?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Audi vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2016 Audi A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi A5 Quattro

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2016 Audi A5 Quattro A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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 A5 Quattro A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Recharge the A/C in Your A5 Quattro

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2016 Audi A5 Quattro, 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 use Audi’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2016 Audi A5 Quattro A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Audi A5 Quattro A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Audi A5 Quattro A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems 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 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2016 Audi A5 Quattro? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your A5 Quattro — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2016 Audi A5 Quattro A/C Systems

  • How can I make my A5 Quattro air conditioner 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my A5 Quattro A/C? 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? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your A5 Quattro's A/C system.
