2002 BMW 325i air conditioning problem

I need some help finding whats wrong with my car. Last summer it was blowing cold on drivers side but not passenger. I can hear the compressor working but it seems to be making hissing sound. Now it's not blowing cold air at all, it's all hot. Don't have a lot of money to put it in shop, and want to get some ideas. Thanks!

    My 2002 325Ci blows warm air out of the driver's side and hot air out of the passenger's side vents when the air conditioner is on. I have been told that it is the evaporator and that would require the entire dash to be removed. The quote to do so from the BMW dealership was about $600 for the part and about $2500 total after labor. I think I am going to just learn how to work on that thing because it costs much more than it is worth to keep it!

hey ic, sounds like your refrigerant is low. if you have a low charge it will usually get you slight cool air on the driver's side. have the system checked and make sure you have a full charge. also, be careful about running it low on charge, the refrigerant has oil in it that keeps the compressor lubricated.

SOURCE: how to put on a/c compressor

I would refer you to a Haynes or Chilton auto repair manual to find your a/c compressor. It is normally on top of your motor to the left side and has normally a couple of 1 and half inch to 2 inch hoses with pressed hydraulic lines feeding into it. If you are looking for a replacement www.discountparts.com has cheap replacement parts for your BMW. I hope this information helps you!

SOURCE: hot air on passenger side and cold air on driver

if you have the separate climate controls the unit might have shorted out and caused the heater coil to be constantly engaged

I charged my ac last summer, worked great. This summer the 2 vents on the passenger side work great, very cold. The 2 vents on the drivers side blow air but not cold, just like the ac is not on?


One of your Actuators inside the dash that control the A/C Heat doors/ Baffles that open or close, to either give you hot or cold air has failed. Find and replace the failed Actuator and it should work fine.

In my 2002 chevy impala only cools down in the passenger side but dose not on the driver side. what is wrong?


I assume that you are talking about your air conditioning. The passenger side blows cold and the drivers side is warm. I had the same problem on a couple of my cars, including my 2002 Impala.
I also assume that you know how to use the climate controls for driver vs. passenger.
You need some freon. It may not need very much... maybe 8-12 ounces.
if you're semi-skilled, you can try it yourself with a kit from the parts store. The dealer or shop will charge you at least $125 and they will look for the leak.
It sounds like you have a slow leak, and that could be tough to find.

Air condition kicking on and off


HI, i have a 2000 323i and it sounds like we have a similar problem. my a/c works fine when the blower is going but some times it goes out of control and it's almost like it has a mind of it's own. and sometimes i turn off the car and the blower keeps blowing air even if the car is completely off and the keys are out.
I'm replacing the blower resistor to fix that. i was at the delaer today and spoke to a mechanic and its a common problem on the final stage blower resistor. you have to reach the blower to replace it but its easyer that it sounds.

Good luck

AC blows warm air when it rains


It sounds as if you have an ambient temperature sensor that is either shorting out when it gets wet or either the water is acting like an insulator and sends an incorrect reading to the body control module. You may want to contact BMW to the specific location on your particular year and model. As location will vary with model and year.
