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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my BMW 328i A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around BMW vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2012 BMW 328i A/C systems. Steer your BMW 328i to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2012 BMW 328i 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. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your BMW 328i 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.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2012 BMW 328i, 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). 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 once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2012 BMW 328i A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only BMW 328i A/C problem you may encounter. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2012 BMW 328i? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 328i.
Feeling the heat from your A/C? Our trained technicians can take a look at your 2012 BMW 328i A/C system and recommend a repair plan. Schedule A/C service today and get ready to chill out.
