    I bought an e46 318ci recently because the chassis and paint were in really good shape. I was surprised that the car doesn't come with AC. On the climate control there is no AC button or anything else. I haven't seen any similar cases searching online. I am curious if anyone knows about...

    Hello Everybody, I bought this 328Ci (Eur) a week ago and the car is in a really good shape despite it's 250kKM. The only thing not working is the A/C, the seller warned me about it: he changed the compressor and refilled the system. Yesterday i went to my local auto store, asked for a refill...

    Hey, I’m getting 04 IHKA Fresh Air / recirculated-air flap motor right code and my cold AC air gets mixed up with outside air when I go faster. Is this flap motor the one that’s just beside the blower resistor? On realoem I can see 5 different actuators, can someone describe where they are? Thanks

    Hi, everyone!!! this is my first post on this. I recently bought a 2002 325i and I've noticed the air inside the car seems to come in bursts. the are no issues with the temperature you set at but sometimes it won't consistently come out. any ideas as to what that is and a way to fix it? thank...

    Ok so still fighting my ‘01 330i on the dreaded p0171 and p0174. It seems as if I have gotten it down to something with the ac. Call me crazy. I haven’t read anything in any other thread about this. But it only throws lean codes when I’m running the ac system. Any guesses?

    Hi guys, greetings from Poland! The car with problems is: manual E46 330i 2000. My ac doesn’t blow any cold air as it is right now, but after the recharge it was ice cold. Sometimes there was some icing from the vents. (Visible cold After a week it started to work intermittently. (Sometimes on...

    Hey everyone! I searched the forums for a while before working on my AC and the one hangup I was having was replacing the condenser. I didn't want to mess with the cooling system and I've seen multiple posts asking if you can replace the condenser without draining any coolant. After enough...

    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...

    Some information to start. I have a 2002 330CI. I began having some cooling issues so I decided to beef up the system a little bit. An aluminum radiator and flexalite controller later, I begin to have AC issues. The blower will run but no cold air will begin flowing. The FSR is new, fuses and...

    Hey everyone, So just a couple days ago I was putting in an aftermarket radio in my 2003 325i (sedan) and when I put the dash all back together I noticed my AC stopped working. I did some research and read that replacing the AC unit would work. So I picked one up for $30 on ebay but not even...

    I've noticed that my blower seems to not change the amount of air that comes out of the vent, no matter if it is on low or high settings. It's blowing cold and hot just fine, but the actual amount of air that is coming in does not seem to change. I can hear it get louder as I increase the high...

    I've been reading all over about the aux fan. I suspect I have to buy the very expensive fan and pay a fair amount in shipping to Canada. My A/C is blowing warm air. It seems cooler when I'm on the highway so I suspect the fan already. It does not come on when I first start the car - even...

    My car is blowing hot air out on an irregular schedule. When I first turn the car on and turn the top middle and bottom vents on (along with the AC button) the face vents blow decently cold air while the top and bottom vents blow warm air. As I start to drive and especially when I get on a...

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me some guidance on an issue I've been having for the past couple months. I'll try to give as much info as possible. Basically, the A/C on my 2001 330i (manual transmission) doesn't work well in high ambient temperatures. I first noticed this after I...

    I changed my fuel pump today and when I turned on my car, the Top Won't Work - Instrument Cluster Doesn't Work - Air Conditioning Doesn't Work. All I did was a straight replacement of the fuel pump. I put my old fuel pump back in and the issues are still there. The car drives fine. No...

    Alright so I have searched all over and can't find my particular problem discussed. My air conditioning works, but only kind of. When it is on 3 blue dots and 59F, and all 3 vents going (dash, face, and feet) I get warm air from each. when I switch it to just face and feet vents, i get cold...

    Whats up guys... I had been having major issue with my car going into limp mode, random misfires, etc. It came down to finally changing the ignition coils, among many other things. Now the car runs nice and smooth. However, since I changed the ignition coils, my AC doesn't work. It sounds...

    I have an 2002 E46 325i with 91,000 km on it, and I am experiencing really weird AC issues. My Problem: I noticed that when I start the car up in the morning and turn the AC to full blast, there would be little drops of water coming out of the two front vents, sometimes the water would drop...
