Report: a/c not working properly
BMW X3 Problem
Average Mileage: 77,750 mi (57,000 mi - 96,753 mi)
Just started last Thursday, when my air comes on only the left driver side vents kick out cool air. The vents on the right passenger side seem to be blowing air, but its not cool. Its hot air, its like something is blocking the air from completely coming through. Once I drive around for about 20 minutes a small amount of cool air begins to come out of the vents on the right side of the vehicle. Does anybody have any idea why this might be happening. We have had some hellish tempartures in SC recently from 103 to 113. I have had the vehicle for four years and never had a problem with the a/c not working properly.

Same problem. Cools only on drivers side and even that is not sufficient. Going to try freon and hoping not to replace evaporator.

A/C start to cooling just driver side then not cooling at all
same as stated looking for a repair shop now
I noticed the a/c not cooling properly couple of weeks ago. 57k on the car. I charged it up with freon which took a whole can. Worked great after that, week later steam/smoke came out of the vents & since then the a/c is steadily becoming less cool. Read reports about faulty evaporators, hope I don't have to replace that, hoping it's something more simple like split "o" rings. any similar issues out there?
