If you happen to have a 2015 Audi A3, you should be aware of an air conditioning issue that has been plaguing the vehicle. Apparently in some of the vehicles of this model, it is running loud and it’s hardly blowing cool air at all. If you have similar issues with your air conditioning in a Mercedes, you can find the parts to fix it yourself by visiting our climate control page.

Vehicles affected by this service bulletin:

    2015 Audi A3

    2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet

Corrective action: Dealers will replace either the air-conditioning compressor or the regulating valve, flush the system of contaminants, recharge the system and test for leaks. This is a labor-intensive operation; plan on leaving the car for up to two days. Read More
