Nothing is more uncomfortable than driving around Austin, Texas without any air conditioning. Although rolling the windows down will help, nothing can truly replace a refreshing blast of cold air. So if your BMW’s air conditioning system malfunctions, you need to bring it to a shop that understands the specific needs that the BMW brand requires. A shop that can quickly identify and fix the issue so you can drive with comfort. A shop like Northwest Imports.

Whether you’re out of refrigerant or the compressor is malfunctioning, our team will handle any issue your BMW’s air conditioning system may have!
The best way to maintain the condition of your BMW’s A/C system is to follow their Conditioned Based Service (CBS) scheduling system. By following this schedule, which was created by BMW, you’ll be able to maintain quality performance from the A/C system and your BMW as a whole. With that said, there are things you can look for if you are having problems with the A/C system. If you’re wondering what some of these signs are, then Northwest Imports is here to help you. Here are a few signs that it may be time to get your BMW checked.
If you notice that the cool air in your BMW is faint or non-existent, then it is a clear sign your air conditioning system is malfunctioning. Some causes for this include the compressor malfunctioning, which is responsible for distributing refrigerant through the system, or debris clogging the condenser or evaporator. Regardless of what the issue is, it’s best to let one of our technicians handle the problem!
It’s important to listen to the source of the sounds (grinding or squeaking), as the A/C makes similar sounds to other components when they’re malfunctioning. If it is coming from your A/C, then it may be coming from your compressor. Since it’s responsible for pushing refrigerant throughout the system when in operation, it can become susceptible to wear-and-tear. Make sure to bring your BMW in and avoid any further problems!
This will only happen if the compressor, evaporator, condenser, or any lines/fittings are compromised. Although it won’t be visible, you’ll notice an issue when your vehicle suddenly stops producing cool air. Visit our shop and ask our technicians to check for a leak, as it may be a symptom of a bigger problem!
