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 it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Audi Q3?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Audi vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2016 Audi. Steer your Audi Q3 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2016 Audi Q3’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Q3 A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
While your 2016 Audi Q3’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 use Audi’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2016 Audi Q3 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Audi Q3 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 2016 Audi Q3? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Q3’s A/C!
