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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Audi R8?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Audi vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2011 Audi A/C systems. Bring your Audi R8 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2011 Audi R8’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Audi R8 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 2011 Audi R8 A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. 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. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2011 Audi R8 A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Audi R8 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2011 Audi R8? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your R8.
