Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Honda Clarity A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Honda vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2017 Honda A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Honda Clarity
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2017 Honda Clarity A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Honda Clarity A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2017 Honda Clarity, 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 Honda 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 ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2017 Honda Clarity A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Honda Clarity A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2017 Honda Clarity? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Clarity — without all the sweat puddles!
