Mercedes-Benz 350SDL A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 350SDL A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1990 Mercedes-Benz. Steer your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL 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 350SDL 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. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

350SDL A/C Recharge

While your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL’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 good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL A/C recharges.

Common Mercedes-Benz 350SDL A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Mercedes-Benz 350SDL A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. 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. 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 350SDL? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 350SDL — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL A/C Systems

  • How do I make my 350SDL air conditioning 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 350SDL A/C blowing hot air? An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • 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 350SDL’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
