Convenient & Local 1996 Audi Cabriolet A/C Repair

A/C Service for Audi Cabriolet

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Audi Cabriolet?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Audi vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1996 Audi A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi Cabriolet

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1996 Audi Cabriolet A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Cabriolet A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Cabriolet A/C Recharge

While your 1996 Audi Cabriolet’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Audi guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1996 Audi Cabriolet A/C recharges.

Other Audi Cabriolet A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Audi Cabriolet A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1996 Audi Cabriolet? 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 Cabriolet — without all the sweat puddles!

1996 Audi Cabriolet A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Cabriolet 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 Cabriolet 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? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Cabriolet’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
