  1. A/C Problem

    General E46 Forum
    In my 2006 330 Ci Convertable, the A/C is pumping cold air out of the left side of the center dash vents, but is pumping warm air from the right side of the center dash vents. How is this possible? I know there is a dual blower motor behind the vents, but I thought it would be fed from the...

    General E46 Forum
    I've searched around a bit for answers. Haven't found anything yet. Here are the symptoms: Blows warm about 50% of the time. Unresponsive to thermostat setting. It doesn't matter how I modulate the fan power, it either blows full blast or not at all. I.e., even if the fan is set to the...
  5. Air Conditioning Fails after 30 Min

    General E46 Forum
    Hi, I've done a bit of research, but wanted to pick the collective brain of the Fanatics. I generally get about 30 minutes of super duper cold air from my AC regardless of the outside temperature. After 30 min, the drivers side will blow cold, the centers will be lukewarm, and the passenger...
  6. AC Shuts Off When Stopped

    General E46 Forum
    Hello, all! My girlfriend and I took a day trip to the beach last week in my 1999 323i manual. We used the AC on the way down and everything ran fine. When we got stuck in traffic off of the highway, the car overheated. It shut off the AC and I was able to cool the engine by blowing hot air...

  10. Air conditioning blows warm / cold intermittently.

    General E46 Forum
    The A/C on my '01 325xi wagon is acting up. Sometimes it won't blow cold air and then I will hear the A/C engage, make that very faint hissing sound and begin to blow cold air. Then randomly it will stop blowing cold again. If I turn off the AC button then turn it back on, sometimes that will...

  17. Defroster/Face Roaster

    General E46 Forum
    This is my first winter with my 2005 325i and I'm discovering that I hate the front defroster. In rainy weather it does nothing more than roast me with maximum HEAT and often makes the windows fog up worse. I've never owned a car where you can't control the defroster temp. Running the air...
