We know our way around BMW vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2012 BMW A/C systems. Steer your BMW Alpina B7L xDrive to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2012 BMW Alpina B7L xDrive A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Alpina B7L xDrive A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2012 BMW Alpina B7L xDrive A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting BMW Alpina B7L xDrive A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only BMW Alpina B7L xDrive A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2012 BMW Alpina B7L xDrive? 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 Alpina B7L xDrive’s A/C!

Questions About 2012 BMW Alpina B7L xDrive A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Alpina B7L xDrive air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Alpina B7L xDrive A/C? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Alpina B7L xDrive’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
