Hi daveyrichard,
Just a guess....it sounds as if your leaking refridgerant gas from your AC unit. Maybe you didn;t need to change the compressor. the leakage could be on either the high pressure or low pressure side....Something that may help is to mix up some soapy water, use plenty soap, then sponge the mixture around all the joints that you can see....go as far as you can and as close to the fire wall between the cabin and the engine compartment....With the AC turned on, look out for bubbles....If you see them, thats where your leakage is.....Hope that this imfo helps you to solve your problem and keep your cool.

Identifing the larger a/c hose from the compressor evaporator. is it the low compression hose or the high compression hose. 1999 323i BMW


Hi, the larger AC line from compressor is Low pressure side, for recharging, where in goes into compressor the word 'suction' might be stamped on compressor. It's the line that gets cold.

The a/c on my 2000 bmw 323i blows warm air when I stop at a redlight? It works fine when the car is moving..blowing cool air. Help?


Sounds like your fan is not working. If it is electrical, may be bad relay, fuse or fan motor. If it is mechanical, most likely the clutch is bad.

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

1999 323i air con is freezing then becomes hot and humid


sounds like there is not enough r134 coolant in the system and when your slowing down the compressor stops turning. Have someone add some coolant and you should be ok.
