Convenient & Local 2014 BMW 228i A/C Repair

A/C Service for BMW 228i

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my BMW 228i A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with BMW vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2014 BMW. Bring your BMW 228i to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2014 BMW 228i’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your BMW 228i A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

228i A/C Recharge

While your 2014 BMW 228i’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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to BMW's recommendations. 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 good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2014 BMW 228i A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting BMW 228i A/C Problems

Hot air is a common BMW 228i A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. 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 2014 BMW 228i? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 228i’s A/C!

Questions About 2014 BMW 228i A/C Systems

  • How can I make my 228i air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my 228i 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.
  • 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 228i’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
