There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1983 Mercedes-Benz A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mercedes-Benz 380SL
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL 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 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 380SL A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C system. We will also perform 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations. 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 are trained to efficiently perform 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz 380SL 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL? 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 380SL’s A/C!
