It's important for your driving experience to have an air conditioning unit in your Audi during the hot summer months. Even though we cannot control the temperature outside, the A/C in your Audi gives you climate control capabilities every time you commute. The reason your Audi's air conditioning is not supplying you with cool, crisp air might be due to multiple factors. However, you can fix it on your own, or for a better experience, professional assistance is recommended.

Audi Air-Conditioning issue

It is recommended that you service your air conditioner every year. Besides engine dirt, heat, road debris, and vibrations, your car's air conditioner is constantly exposed to heat. A/C units are exposed to stresses that can cause cracks and loose connections, which may lead to refrigerant leaks and damage your Audi air conditioning. Here are the reasons which can be resolved only by experienced Audi technicians.

Steps to Troubleshoot Audi Air-Conditioning

Air conditioning units in Audis do not fail without warning. This difference in ineffectiveness is noticeable in most situations. In general, complaints fall into one of two categories: a lack of airflow or a lack of cooling.

Blowing of Warm Air from AC

The air conditioner may blow warm or cool air, but not quite cold air if the compressor has failed. In addition, a faulty compressor clutch may lead to inadequate cooling, which requires immediate attention from a professional.

Check for the Leakage

A leaking compressor shaft seal may cause refrigerant to leak from its shaft. The leaks are difficult to detect because they don't have a color or an odor, and they don't leave any fluid behind them. It may be required for an auto technician to inspect the Audi car with a UV light and a special dye in order to identify leaks.

Mildew/Mold Accumulation

The process of creating cold air requires a lot of moisture. Mold and mildew can form when there is a lot of moisture, which can clog up your air conditioner's channels and reduce airflow. A scrubbing sponge and hot water can be used to clean the inside surface of the air conditioner unit, which will remove any visible mold traces.

Failing Seals or Loose Hoses

You may have weak airflow if one of the seals connecting various channels throughout your AC system has failed: either the blower hose or one of the seals connecting the various channels has worn out. A hot day will allow you to notice if that cold air leaks somewhere along the way.
