Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mercedes-Benz 380SL?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C systems. Bring your Mercedes-Benz 380SL to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1985 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. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different 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.

Recharge the A/C in Your 380SL

Let's say we repair your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Mercedes-Benz’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged 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 know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C recharges.

Other Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. 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 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 380SL’s A/C!

Questions About 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL A/C Systems

  • How do I make my 380SL air conditioning colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my 380SL 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? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your 380SL's A/C system.
