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

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mercedes-Benz 300SEL?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1990 Mercedes-Benz. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 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 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 300SEL 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.

Recharge the A/C in Your 300SEL

While your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL A/C recharges.

Common Mercedes-Benz 300SEL A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz 300SEL A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 300SEL’s A/C!

1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my 300SEL 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 is my 300SEL A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • 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 300SEL’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
