A/C Repair Service for Your BMW 328i

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my BMW 328i A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with BMW vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2016 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 2016 BMW 328i A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your BMW 328i 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.

Recharge the A/C in Your 328i

Let's say we repair your 2016 BMW 328i A/C system. We will also perform 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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system 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 2016 BMW 328i A/C recharges.

Common BMW 328i A/C Problems

Hot air is a common BMW 328i A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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 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 2016 BMW 328i? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 328i — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2016 BMW 328i A/C Systems

  • How can I make my 328i 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 328i A/C? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? 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 328i's A/C system.
