Post Weird A/C acting up

Just found this today since I barely drive my 00 e46 wagon but anyway I was with the family and my decide to turn the A/C on and I noticed that my side was blowing nice cold air but on her side it was warm I tried to turn it on and off but did not help. I'm wondering if anybody here has gone through this problem before?

Any ideas?
Any advices?

I'm in for this problem too. I noticed it today as well. The drivers side is real cool, but the pass side is rather warm. Subscribed.

You both need your AC charged. DIY or local Indy, it's your choice. Either way, your problem is exactly what happens when your freon is low.

There are a few DIY's here on the subject. Some say don't attempt it, others have done so with no problems. If you go the DIY, just take your time and it's better to be conservative on the amount you add. Good luck and enjoy your new found AC!!!
