Nearest A/C Repair for Your 2009 BMW 128i

A/C Repair Service for Your BMW 128i

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my BMW 128i A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know BMW vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2009 BMW. Steer your BMW 128i to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2009 BMW 128i’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your BMW 128i A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for BMW 128i

Let's say we repair your 2009 BMW 128i A/C system. We will also perform 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 use BMW’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2009 BMW 128i A/C recharges.

Common BMW 128i A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential BMW 128i A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is 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 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2009 BMW 128i? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 128i.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2009 BMW 128i A/C Systems

  • How can I make my 128i air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What’s making my 128i A/C put out warm air? 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.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? 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 128i’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
