A/C Repair Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 300E

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 300E A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1986 Mercedes-Benz A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mercedes-Benz 300E

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E 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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Mercedes-Benz 300E A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

300E A/C Recharge

While your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E’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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 300E A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Mercedes-Benz 300E A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns 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 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E? 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 300E’s A/C!

1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my 300E air conditioning 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 300E A/C put out warm air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your 300E’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
