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. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mercedes-Benz 260E?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mercedes-Benz 260E
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E’s 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 suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Mercedes-Benz 260E 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.
Let's say we repair your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C system. We will also perform 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system 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 260E A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz 260E A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 260E’s A/C!
