Smoke from the A/C - HELLLPPPPP!!!!

Good day all,

I have a 2002 - 325XI. Late summer when using A/C I was getting some smoke from the vents to the cabin. Now, I'm getting it when the heater is on.

What do you think it can be?

Smells like smoke and kinda thick. Also looks like a light, thin smoke.

Sounds like you've got a air-con gas leak, you better get it checked out before you get the blame for the hole in the ozone layer!!

I've had steam come out twice in about 5weeks. Is this a concern ? Do I need a refill ?

Steam out of your internal vents??, You will have a leak somewhere take it too an aircon regas place and they should be able to find the leak for you.
