1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C Repair Near You

A/C Repair Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

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 lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1988 Mercedes-Benz. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’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.” 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 system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, 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. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C Problems

You may think warm air is the only potential Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1988 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your 560SEL.

Questions About 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL A/C Systems

  • Can I make my 560SEL 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.
  • What’s making my 560SEL A/C put out warm 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? 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 560SEL’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
