Mercedes-Benz 300TE A/C Repair

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 300TE A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1990 Mercedes-Benz A/C systems. Steer your Mercedes-Benz 300TE to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Mercedes-Benz 300TE A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

300TE A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE, 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Mercedes-Benz guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE A/C recharges.

Common Mercedes-Benz 300TE A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz 300TE A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this 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 300TE? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your 300TE — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE A/C Systems

  • Can I make my 300TE air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What’s making my 300TE A/C put out warm 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your 300TE’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
