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 wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my BMW 320i xDrive?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around BMW vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2018 BMW. Bring your BMW 320i xDrive to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive’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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your BMW 320i xDrive A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 2018 BMW 320i xDrive A/C system. We will also perform 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. 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 after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2018 BMW 320i xDrive A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only BMW 320i 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 2018 BMW 320i xDrive? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your 320i xDrive — without all the sweat puddles!
