We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1987 Mercedes-Benz. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

Recharge the A/C in Your 420SEL

While your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do 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. 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. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1987 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL? 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 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 420SEL’s A/C!

Questions About 1987 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL A/C Systems

  • Can I make my 420SEL air conditioner 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 do I get hot air from my 420SEL A/C? 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system 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 420SEL’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
