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.

Q3 A/C Recharge

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.

Troubleshooting Audi Q3 A/C Problems

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!

2016 Audi Q3 A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my Q3 air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Q3 A/C? 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 Q3's A/C system.
