Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Mercedes-Benz 560SL?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1988 Mercedes-Benz. Bring your Mercedes-Benz 560SL to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Mercedes-Benz 560SL 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.
Let's say we repair your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL 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. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Mercedes-Benz guidelines. 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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz 560SL 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 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 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your 560SL’s A/C!
