AC not blowing sufficient air

Yeah it’s another AC thread.

I have a 2018 i3s BEV with 9k miles. Over the last 2-3 months I’ve noticed that the AC would randomly stop blowing cold air. This would be accompanied by the blower barely pushing out any air through the vents..

I took it in to the dealer, and apparently there is an update available for this very same issue. So if you’re experiencing it, go complain... unfortunately during the update, it failed to apply and bricked the computer so will have to wait a few more days to know if this “fix” actually solves the issue.

Here’s the bulletin.. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2019/ ... 7-9999.pdf

I’ve also been hearing a louder than normal humming from what I can only assume is a fan towards the front of the car. No word yet on whether that’s being addressed yet.

Super paranoid about AC issues given how quickly things can get out of control if something were to fail.
