    Interesting article on average freon loss per year in sample of 2,000 German cars including BMW. This would result in 1 to 2 ounces of loss R134a. So this would lead me to believe that a 10 year old car would typically need 8 to 12 ounces recharged. No additives, just 134a that comes in the...

    OK, so its 100 degrees everyday around here in North Texas. Not a good time for a/c problems, especially when you have a black on black 760! My a/c works great on as long as the car is moving, but quits upon slowing down or stopping in traffic. Of course the first thing is to make certain is...

    I've owned my '94 540i for a year. The AC worked well last summer and fall. This spring it worked fine but about 3 months ago it started acting up. It blows cold when it works, but it seems to have a mind of it's own. It's now working occasionally, and the green light only come on when it works...

    I took the car to a local independent dealer and they put some kind of dye in the cooling system. Freon leaked again overnight, never leaving a spot, guess it evaporated. :eeps: Took it back, they couldn't find the leak, refilled it and used another kind of dye. Same thing happens and I'm...
  7. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I searched around a bit and couldn't come across much so I thought I'd throw this out to the board: Here are the bullet points, a little more description below: -Squealing noise similar to bad power steering happening -Definite freon leak, has been recharged twice in the past 12 months -Noise...
