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 lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my BMW 528i A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around BMW vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1998 BMW 528i A/C systems. Bring your BMW 528i to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1998 BMW 528i A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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” 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 detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 1998 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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1998 BMW 528i A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential BMW 528i A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include 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 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 1998 BMW 528i? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 528i’s A/C!
