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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my BMW 528i A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know BMW vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1997 BMW 528i A/C systems. Steer your BMW 528i to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1997 BMW 528i A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your BMW 528i A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 1997 BMW 528i A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per BMW guidelines. 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 all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1997 BMW 528i A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common BMW 528i A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1997 BMW 528i? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 528i — without all the sweat puddles!
