Mercedes-Benz 560SL A/C Repair

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.

A/C Recharge for Mercedes-Benz 560SL

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.

Other Mercedes-Benz 560SL A/C Problems

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!

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

  • How do I make my 560SL 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.
  • What’s making my 560SL A/C put out warm air? 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 causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your 560SL’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.
