Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my BMW 325?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around BMW vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1987 BMW A/C systems. Bring your BMW 325 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1987 BMW 325 A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your BMW 325 A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 1987 BMW 325, 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 1987 BMW 325 A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common BMW 325 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1987 BMW 325? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your 325 — without all the sweat puddles!
