Audi RS3 A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Audi RS3 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2018 Audi RS3 A/C systems. Bring your Audi RS3 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2018 Audi RS3 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 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 RS3 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.

RS3 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2018 Audi RS3 A/C system. We will also perform 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Audi guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2018 Audi RS3 A/C recharges.

Common Audi RS3 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Audi RS3 A/C problem you may encounter. 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. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 2018 Audi RS3? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your RS3 — without all the sweat puddles!

2018 Audi RS3 A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my RS3 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 RS3 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your RS3’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
