Note:
Only a high pressure service valve is used for A/C system servicing. A low pressure service valve is not installed. Perform all A/C system service (ie. discharging, evacuating and charging) through the high pressure service valve only.

No, they are not. THe A4 and the A6 chassis are different, the bumpers have a similar style and look to them, but they are not interchangable.

Look for the larger A/C line going to your compressor, thats the low side line that you will find the fitting to add freon

SOURCE: Where's the thermostat on a 96 audi a6

  • On this vehicle the thermostat is behind the timing cover and you have to remove a cam gear to get to it. It is one heck of a job. Says to allow 2 1/2 hours in a mechanic shop. I suggest this one be done by someone that is mechanic savvy. This is not a job for an amateur.
  • I have uploaded a picture so you can visualize it's location as well.
  • Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Audi A6 air con always blow very hot air coming from engine with bad smell


The smell is probably related to the catalic converter when a cat goes bad it creates a smell similar to rotten eggs. You might need to replace the catalic converter. This will improve gas mileage and performance. The hot air blowing from the AC is probably a low charge on the Freon.

My a6 quattro A/C is stuck on Econ mode


I'm not an Audi expert, but you may have a problem with the ac system.
If the system is low on freon, or a sensor has failed, the system will not let you engage it.
I would check to see if the system has freon in it and if the compressor has voltage first.

Ac not getting cold


Generally the first thing to check is the freon. You can do it yourself with a self-charging freon kit. If the leak is small enough then you may only need to do this once. Be careful to follow the directions and use the gauges to be sure you don't put too much freon in. That will result in a costly repair

Add freon to 2003 audi A8...any special tools needed? I have gauge and equipment but system will not take freon on the high side.


NEVER attempt to add freon on the HIGH side...This is very dangerous and can result in injury and damge to the system! The correct set of AC manifold gauges are needed to monitor pressures and determine the overall condition of the system...Refrigerants should be added by trained refrigeration technicians.

My ac blow out hot air and i want to put freon in my self and want to know how


Adding freon will not correct the problem. If you need to add freon, you have a leak, and you have moisture in the system, the leak should be located, mositure removed, then freon added. But to answer your question. Open the hood on, the left side you will see a round object called a dryer, you will see two pipes coming from it, one at the top and one at the bottom. The smaller is the high side, the larger is the low side. Obtain a can of freon either R-22 or 134a with an adapter for installing the freon. Turn the engine on, turn the AC to high. Add the freon to the ac using the low side.
