BMW 318ti A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my BMW 318ti A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around BMW vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1999 BMW. Bring your BMW 318ti to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1999 BMW 318ti 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 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 318ti A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

318ti A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1999 BMW 318ti, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to BMW's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1999 BMW 318ti A/C recharges.

Common BMW 318ti A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential BMW 318ti A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1999 BMW 318ti? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 318ti’s A/C!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1999 BMW 318ti A/C Systems

  • How can I make my 318ti 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my 318ti A/C? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your 318ti's A/C system.
