Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Audi A8 Quattro A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Audi vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1998 Audi A/C systems. Steer your Audi A8 Quattro to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1998 Audi A8 Quattro A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Audi A8 Quattro A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1998 Audi A8 Quattro’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Audi guidelines. 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 good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1998 Audi A8 Quattro A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Audi A8 Quattro A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1998 Audi A8 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your A8 Quattro.
