Question about 2001 BMW 325

1 Answer

Air conditioner on the fritz.

First it just hummed when on. Then the vents in the middle right and far right began blowing ambient air. Now it seems like the other vents are not so cold either. Sounds kind of like a combination of problems?

    I have the exact same problem. When the A/C is on, the passenger vents blow warm and whole system hums. My dealer just tells me to bring it in but I can't afford the thousands of dollars they're gonna charge me. If anyone has had any success fixing this problem, and you could be any more specific, I'd love the help.

I had the same problem. Contact the dealer and they will tell you what piece, it was around 70 bucks. I cant remember what it was called, but it was a simple piece. You have to go thru the glove box towards the driver side to remove the old one, its tough to get to, but you will see it and simply replace it with the new one.

I have a 98 ford windstar..heat doesnt work...will only blow cold air, but engine temp. stays normal, when i turn on heat it only blows at window vent..what can this be?


It could be your heating coil. It seems that your fan is running (at least to the outside vents). Since your temp. is fine there is probable not a problem with your coolant. As far as it not blowing through the vents in the middle couldn't tell you.

My air conditioning began making a rythmic squeaking noise when the AC was on. It has now quit blowing out of the front vents. It works on the feet, defrost vents and in the rear air. What could this be??


  1. Air conditioner system is discharged. Have the system evacuated, charged and leak tested by an MVAC certified technician, utilizing approved recovery/recycling equipment. Repair as necessary.
  2. Air conditioner compressor clutch not engaging. Check compressor clutch wiring, electrical connections and compressor clutch, and repair or replace as necessary.

When I turn my vent selector to defrost on the far right (air con off)the air conditioning comes on. The dash vents will blow ambient air, but defrost setting blows air con. Any ideas?


It's normal for the A/C compressor to come on with the defroster to dehumidify the air so the windsheild won't fog up under humid conditions. You can still control the air temp. out the vents with the temp. select switch.

Air conditioner not working properly


I have just ordered the part to fix this. It is the A/C vacuum actuator (not sure why they call it a vacuum actuator because it is an electric actuator). It is under the dash on the driver's side close to the radio. There are two in the same area. It is the one closest to the floor. You can verify by taking it out (pull out duct that runs from center of vehicle to the outside to get better access), and actuating the vent by hand with the blower on to see if you now get air out the middle vents.

The part number is 1573596 from Rock Auto on the net. It cost $40.79.
