It sounds like the vent door solenoids are not working properly and either need replaced or repaired. What do you mean by "gas levels ok pump working fine?"

Good day
thanks for the advise but tell me what and where are this solenoids situated if you say repair what does that mean can I open this solenoids and maybe replace o rings or seals

the gas referred to R134a levels are correct
thanks

I took it to a autorised car dealer and they put pipes with gauges and test the aircon and the outcome was ac has no gasleak and pressures within spec

The dash cap could be removed to view the issue or you could take it to an independent BMW agency
