  1. BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    Hi all I hope someone can shed some light on this air con issue. I have been all over the internet and have not been able to find a solution. The air con has stopped blowing cold!! It was re-gassed and ice cold for about 2 weeks at the end of March and since then nothing... I have checked...

    Okay, so I have recently had the air con re-gassed and the passenger side is freezing. However, the driver's side is not. The car does have dual climate which are both set to 16 degrees (the lowest it goes) and the wheel at the centre vent is pushed to the extreme left to blue/cold. Even the...
  3. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I did a lot of research online and people suggested to change the valve cover gasket. It has been about a week now and still noticed smoke coming into the cabin from time to time. I have noticed that smoke only comes in when I have stopped (not straight away when engine is started). After...

    I have an odd problem with the air con on my 3 series. At the star of a journey everything works normally - the air is chilled and all of the blowers blow. However, after driving for 30-40 minutes the air just stops blowing. Even if I hit Max AC almost nothing comes through the vents although...

    Hi All I have just bought a 99 728i, it is a tidy car but has a few annoying faults, any help would be appreciated. Here we go...... 1. The Air con. The Compressor kicks in when switched on but no cold air, it then starts to whine after a while. Before i just re-gas, anyone else had any...

    The problem: My air con fails after a random amount of time, sometimes after 30 minutes, sometimes up to 90 minutes. Recently re-gassed by BMW specialist with the right weight of gas and checked for leaks. When the air con is on, the compressor clutch is engaged, when it eventually cuts out...

    I've removed, regreased, and refitted a squeaky blower which was squeaking then stopped working. Since then the AC stopped working. I've had the system regassed but still no AC. Is there somewhere else I should be looking? Would a faulty FSR cause problems with the AC? Is there an easy way of...
  9. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi All! New to the forum but have been avid reader with a while. This site has answered so many questions for me that I thought it was silly not being a member. I was wondering if anyone has ever converted their E36 from basic heater controls to Digital (or Analogue) Air con? Bought a 98 320i...

    I have a 1998 323i E36 Convertible. I'm worried about the air con for a few reasons: The temp is not as low as it should be when running on coldest setting. When aircon is on two things happen -there's a drop in engine power so you feel the aircon kick in, and when the car is in traffic with the...

    Hello I'm looking for some advice on how to fix my aircon/pusher fan combo. I suspected fan failure and I bought an aftermarket replacement. When I connect it to the car it spins few degrees and that’s the only sign of life from it. The old one which is still mounted on the car does not move...

    hi all, need quick help with air con settings? I believe. When I change temperature to minimum (18deg?) and press aircon(snow flake mark) button, it blows hot air, does not matter what I do, change settings in I-drive, volume of air etc. Last evening outside temperature was 6.5deg and was still...

    Wanting to remove the air con unit from my 328i as it no longer works, and to be honest i wouldn't use it anyway. Looking from underneath, all the pipes are very corroded and soon will probably start leaking. Is there any implications of removing the a/c or can i just take the unit off, remove...

    I have a problem with the air conditioning and heated blower on my 318ci e46. Basically the blowers blow out normal outside temperature air at all times. I've had the temperature right up to 32*C until the car is fully warmed up and set the blower above the radiator to 3 red dots and the air...

    Hi All, I have posted within a thread tonight already but I guess I will need to start a new thread. So its a 2002 e39 520i touring. 112k The fan stopped working. A very small amount of cold air is coming through the vents at about 70mph. I have had this problem in the past and I changed...

    This car has climate control. 18 months ago the air con started to blow warm at 16 c setting. BMW local regassed and did a leak check later and all was OK. Symptoms have now returned along with a low volume moaning noise which is just obvious inside the car. This noise stops dead when the air...

    Can anyone help me with this problem? The heater on my year 2000 323i E46 only ever blows luke warm air. The temp gauge is always on about 1/2 but even on full blast the cabin never gets warm. Also, even though I just got the air con regased it never blows out true cold air, just cool. Can...

    Hi everyone - I have a 13yr old 328i (don't you love the price of petrol?!). At least one of the sensors heater has gone, or even the motherboard in the 'computer'. The heater interface is blank nearly all the time, the fan doesn't blow, but freezing (air conned) air/vapour falls from the...
