Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz CL500 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1999 Mercedes-Benz. Bring your Mercedes-Benz CL500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL500’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Mercedes-Benz CL500 A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.
While your 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL500’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL500 A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz CL500 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL500? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. 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 CL500.
