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 lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Audi Q5 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2017 Audi Q5 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi Q5
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2017 Audi Q5 A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Audi Q5 A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 2017 Audi Q5’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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2017 Audi Q5 A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Audi Q5 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include 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 2017 Audi Q5? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 Q5.
Feeling the heat from your A/C? Our trained technicians can take a look at your 2017 Audi Q5 A/C system and recommend a repair plan. Schedule A/C service today and get ready to chill out.
