Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C systems. Bring your Mercedes-Benz 190D to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your 190D

While your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll use Mercedes-Benz’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 190D.

1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D A/C System FAQs

  • How can I make my 190D air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my 190D A/C? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your 190D's A/C system.
