Audi A5 Quattro 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 lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Audi A5 Quattro A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 Audi A5 Quattro 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 2018 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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Audi A5 Quattro A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A5 Quattro A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2018 Audi A5 Quattro, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the 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 we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2018 Audi A5 Quattro A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Audi A5 Quattro A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Audi A5 Quattro A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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. And smelly A/C in a 2018 Audi A5 Quattro? 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 A5 Quattro.

Questions About 2018 Audi A5 Quattro A/C Systems

  • How do I make my A5 Quattro air conditioning 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 A5 Quattro 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your A5 Quattro’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.
