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

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. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mercedes-Benz 300SDL?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1987 Mercedes-Benz A/C systems. Steer your Mercedes-Benz 300SDL to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Mercedes-Benz 300SDL A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Mercedes-Benz 300SDL

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL, 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 300SDL A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Mercedes-Benz 300SDL A/C problem you may 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 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. And smelly A/C in a 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your 300SDL — without all the sweat puddles!

Questions About 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL A/C Systems

  • Can I make my 300SDL 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my 300SDL A/C? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • How does my A/C system get a 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 300SDL’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
