Convenient & Local 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC A/C Repair

A/C Repair Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 500SEC

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 500SEC A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We’ve got experience with Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz. Bring your Mercedes-Benz 500SEC to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC’s 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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Mercedes-Benz 500SEC A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

500SEC A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC 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. The A/C system is recharged 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 know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 500SEC A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Mercedes-Benz 500SEC 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. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC? 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 500SEC.

1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my 500SEC air conditioner 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 500SEC 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? 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 500SEC's A/C system.
