Peugeot 405 A/C Repair

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Peugeot 405 A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Peugeot vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1991 Peugeot 405 A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Peugeot 405

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1991 Peugeot 405 A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). 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." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Peugeot 405 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.

405 A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1991 Peugeot 405 A/C system. We will also perform 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Peugeot 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 good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1991 Peugeot 405 A/C recharges.

Other Peugeot 405 A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Peugeot 405 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. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1991 Peugeot 405? 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 405.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1991 Peugeot 405 A/C Systems

  • Can I make my 405 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 405 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? 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 405’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
