When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my BMW 328xi?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know BMW vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2008 BMW 328xi A/C systems. Bring your BMW 328xi to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2008 BMW 328xi’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 we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your BMW 328xi A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
While your 2008 BMW 328xi’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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 after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2008 BMW 328xi A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential BMW 328xi A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. 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 2008 BMW 328xi? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 328xi’s A/C!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 2008 BMW 328xi A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
