Mein Auto: X3 2.5
AC only works out of driver side vents

I've had my 2004 X3 2.5 for a little over a year now and recently I've noticed a decrease in its AC function. Once, I turned the fan all the way up and no air was coming out at all. Now, the AC comes out of the driver side vents but blows heat out of the passenger side. I noticed that the air that comes out of the drivers side isn't as cold as it used to be either. Does anyone know what this could be? I would love a DIY solution!

You need Freon .Mine did the same thing.You can buy a kit and do it your self.
I would put the freon in that has Dye in it so you can maybe detect a leak.
