    BMW E46 2001 330i 4doors The AC works perfectly fine as long the car is idling however when I drive it the AC temp starts climbing down then no cold air comes out unless I turn off the AC with ice-flake button then restart it again. It cools for a while and drops again. I refilled the freon to...

    2001 325xi touring. Ever since I’ve owned this wagon, I’ve had intermittent blowing issues. It’s most prominent during the summer, and sucks especially bad because no AC in the Utah summer doesn’t fly. Sometimes I can start the car and the air will blow. Other times, I will start it and it won’t...

    My ac isn’t working. I bought it like this but I’m stumped on how to fix it. The climate control fuse is good and there’s no refrigerant leaks anywhere. The ac compressor doesn’t wanna turn on

    I got my E46 used a couple of months ago and can't seem to get rid of the bad mould/sweat smell from the previous owner out of the vents. I changed the cabin air filter right away and sprayed some disinfectant into the air intake while the vents where on max, did that a couple of times which...

Sometimes there was some icing from the vents. (Visible cold After a week it started to work intermittently. (Sometimes on...

    Hello i have a E46 320Ci, daily drifter which im soon going to engine swap and turbo. I wonder if it's possible to remove the AC condenser + most of the lines but keep the heating function, basicly removing all the cold part of the AC, but keep the heating because i need it to defrost my...

    Hi guys ! I just have a few questions regarding our A/C system. I had to open it so I decided might as well change a few components. I'm replacing all the O-rings, replacing the expansion valve and heater control valve (trying to address the ac blowing hot air issue), and the AC drier because...

    Hi guys :D So I've had my e46 320i for about a year and a half now. I've always wondered why my AC is not freezing cold :banghead: Was just wondering if there are any AC experts in the house that can help me out. Here goes: 1. If I change the temperature of the AC (up or down) makes no...

    Puzzling question that I have been struggling with for a few months now. My 2004 330Ci is blowing warm air from the the air ducts regardless of the temperature selected on the climate control panel. This is mostly felt when the front vents are selected, a little less when either the defrost or...

    Howdy - I've just gotten my reliable 2002 325i working again and there are a few issues I need fixed stat. First is the blowers - when I turn on the vents, no matter how high or what temp I set the system to, I get no air flow. My previous mechanic had said it was either the blower motor or...

    Hi. I've searched high and low. I want to know if anyone has either replaced the bearings or the clutch pulley portion of the AC compressor in a 2005 325i sedan. If so, do you have a source for either or the size of bearing? I found a DIY for an M3 below but I am assuming it is a different part...

    Hey guys back with another issue existing on my 'love-to-hate' e46 Currently whenever i turn the AC on for any longer than a couple minutes, refridgerant is spurted out of the pressure relief valve in the compressor and im forced to turn it off. The electric fan is completely brand new as long...

    I set my climate control to 23°C (England) and select auto. The heater starts blowing warm air and the air temperature in the cab raises to what feels like 23°C which is great. But.... After about 10/15mins all the heater vents start to blow cold. Including foot vents and the centre vent. If...

    Exactly as the title goes, can a blocked AC Condenser cause the compressor to release pressure via the relief valve? Provided, the electric fan is working and the r134a is filled to spec by weight.

    Good morning to all people who this applies to :) I have just purchased a beautiful Bmw 330i with a lot of AC Schnitzer parts fitted and I wondered if this is how the car started its life? Or if it had been 'suped' up by somebody who at some stage has clearly loved the car and thought they...

    All, I cannot find anyone with the same symptoms as me. My AC works great when I first start my car up in the morning AND after I've let the car sit for several hours. But after a short break (i.e. grocery shopping/getting gas/etc), it rarely works. Especially on hot days. Sometimes it'll...

    Guys, Excuse me for being a total newbie, but I recently got my first car, an e46 325i in Topaz Blue. Beautiful car, engine runs smooth, no SES signs. However, I knew I needed to put some work into it. I'm new to DIY also so I had an indy shop bleed the brakes and change the brake line, change...

    I recently became the owner of a 2003 325i. I love the car, but, being so old, it needed a few things here and there. I replaced the headlights Thursday and the horn today so that it would pass inspection and I could move the title to my name. While I was running around today, I noticed the...
