A/C Repair Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 260E

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C systems. Steer your Mercedes-Benz 260E to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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 Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Mercedes-Benz 260E

While your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Mercedes-Benz’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also include 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. And smelly A/C in a 1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 260E.

Questions About 1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C Systems

  • Can I make my 260E air conditioner colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my 260E A/C put out warm air? 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 260E's A/C system.
