A/C Service for Audi A5

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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Audi A5 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Audi vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2011 Audi A/C systems. Steer your Audi A5 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2011 Audi A5’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Audi A5 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

A5 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2011 Audi A5 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 after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2011 Audi A5 A/C recharges.

Common Audi A5 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Audi A5 A/C problem you may encounter. 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 2011 Audi A5? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your A5 — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2011 Audi A5 A/C Systems

  • Can I make my A5 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 A5 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.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? 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's A/C system.
