There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my BMW 230i xDrive A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know BMW vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2020 BMW A/C systems. Bring your BMW 230i xDrive to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2020 BMW 230i xDrive A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. 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 230i xDrive A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
Let's say we repair your 2020 BMW 230i xDrive 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per BMW guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2020 BMW 230i xDrive A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only BMW 230i xDrive A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2020 BMW 230i xDrive? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 230i xDrive.
When you’ve got car A/C problems, don’t sweat it. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, our technicians are qualified to diagnose issues and repair your 2020 BMW 230i xDrive A/C system. Beat the heat and come in today for a refreshingly easy A/C performance check.
