There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Alfa Romeo Spider?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Alfa Romeo vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1983 Alfa Romeo A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Alfa Romeo Spider
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1983 Alfa Romeo Spider A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Alfa Romeo Spider A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1983 Alfa Romeo Spider’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Alfa Romeo guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1983 Alfa Romeo Spider A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Alfa Romeo Spider A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1983 Alfa Romeo Spider? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Spider’s A/C!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1983 Alfa Romeo Spider A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
