Audi A6 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. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Audi A6 Quattro?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1996 Audi A6 Quattro A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi A6 Quattro

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1996 Audi A6 Quattro 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Audi A6 Quattro A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A6 Quattro A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1996 Audi A6 Quattro 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. Then, they’ll use Audi’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1996 Audi A6 Quattro A/C recharges.

Other Audi A6 Quattro A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Audi A6 Quattro 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. And smelly A/C in a 1996 Audi A6 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. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your A6 Quattro — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1996 Audi A6 Quattro A/C Systems

  • How can I make my A6 Quattro air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What’s making my A6 Quattro A/C put out warm 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 A6 Quattro's A/C system.
