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

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mercedes-Benz 300TD?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1985 Mercedes-Benz A/C systems. Steer your Mercedes-Benz 300TD to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Mercedes-Benz 300TD A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

300TD A/C Recharge

While your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD’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 once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD A/C recharges.

Common Mercedes-Benz 300TD A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Mercedes-Benz 300TD A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 300TD’s A/C!

Questions About 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300TD A/C Systems

  • How can I make my 300TD 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 300TD A/C blowing hot 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 causes A/C system leaks? 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 300TD’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
