Nearest A/C Repair for Your 2019 Audi S3

A/C Service for Audi S3

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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Audi S3 A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Audi vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2019 Audi S3 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Audi S3

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2019 Audi S3 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 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 S3 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Recharge the A/C in Your S3

Let's say we repair your 2019 Audi S3 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 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 2019 Audi S3 A/C recharges.

Other Audi S3 A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Audi S3 A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. 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 2019 Audi S3? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your S3.

2019 Audi S3 A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my S3 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 S3 A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • 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 S3’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
