Question about 2001 BMW 325
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!

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!

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