Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my BMW 228i A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around BMW vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2016 BMW 228i A/C systems. 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 2016 BMW 228i’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your BMW 228i A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2016 BMW 228i, we’ll also do 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. 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 the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2016 BMW 228i A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only BMW 228i A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include 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 2016 BMW 228i? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 228i’s A/C!
