A/C Repair Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL

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.

420SEL A/C Recharge

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.

Other Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C Problems

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.

Questions About 1986 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C Systems

  • How do I make my 420SEL air conditioning 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my 420SEL A/C? 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.
  • 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 420SEL's A/C system.
