When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C systems. Bring your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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 420SEL A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
Let's say we repair your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. 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 the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 420SEL.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
