A/C Service for Audi Q5

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 take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Audi Q5 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2009 Audi Q5 A/C systems. Steer your Audi Q5 to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2009 Audi Q5’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Audi Q5 A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Q5

While your 2009 Audi Q5’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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Audi's recommendations. 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. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2009 Audi Q5 A/C recharges.

Common Audi Q5 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Audi Q5 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes 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 2009 Audi Q5? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 Q5 — without all the sweat puddles!

2009 Audi Q5 A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Q5 air conditioning 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 is my Q5 A/C blowing hot 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? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Q5’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
