Mercedes-Benz CL550 A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Mercedes-Benz CL550 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550 A/C systems. Bring your Mercedes-Benz CL550 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550’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." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Mercedes-Benz CL550 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 CL550

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). 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 we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550 A/C recharges.

Common Mercedes-Benz CL550 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Mercedes-Benz CL550 A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. 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 may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 CL550.

Questions About 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550 A/C Systems

  • How do I make my CL550 air conditioning colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why do I get hot air from my CL550 A/C? 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 CL550’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.
