BMW 325es A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. 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 325es A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with BMW vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 BMW. Bring your BMW 325es to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1986 BMW 325es 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your BMW 325es 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.

A/C Recharge for BMW 325es

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 BMW 325es, we’ll also do 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to BMW's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1986 BMW 325es A/C recharges.

Common BMW 325es A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only BMW 325es 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. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1986 BMW 325es? 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 325es — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1986 BMW 325es A/C Systems

  • How do I make my 325es air conditioning colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my 325es A/C blowing hot air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your 325es’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
