    Aircon Issues

    Hi,

    Seem to have a problem with my aircon - it blows cold when on low, but is very warm when at all other temperatures including 18 (the one just above low).

    Anyone have any ideas what the problem might be ?

    Thanks very much

    I think it's just the inefficiency of the B6 aircon......

    Yeh the aircon is crap lol. Its not totally crap, in that it will blow cold on LO, but at anything above that, ie if the suns out on a cold day but the car is warm it wont - its almost as though Audi's 18C is 5C warmer than everyone elses!

    I'll have to agree too, mine seemed to get colder on manual LO instead of Auto though ? WTF.

    When we had really hot days this summer it just couldn't handle it.

    My company Focus Estate has excellent AC. Takes about a couple of mins to get freezing. A little longer when it's Really hot outside obviously.

    wow i came onto the site this evening to check up on this very issue! very disappointed in the aircon in my B6 A4! the climate control in my old bora was head and shoulders above it.

    Could it be linked to a faulty temp sensor? i.e the car doesn't know what outside temp is so just blows hot air on anything other than 'lo'

    Its a joke!

    It needs regassing fairly often, at least every 2 years. I had mine done, it had about half the required gas in it. Got it cleaned and topped up. Works nice and cold now just like its supposed to.

    Thats the problem I was trying to get across, cold air isn't a problem, cool air is.
