A/C Service for Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 Mercedes-Benz. Steer your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. 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." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

A/C Recharge for Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Mercedes-Benz’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems.

1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my 560SEL 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 is my 560SEL 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 can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your 560SEL’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
