Nearest A/C Repair for Your 1999 Porsche Boxster

A/C Service for Porsche Boxster

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. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Porsche Boxster A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Porsche vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1999 Porsche. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Porsche Boxster

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1999 Porsche Boxster A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Porsche Boxster 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.

Boxster A/C Recharge

While your 1999 Porsche Boxster’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Porsche's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant 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 1999 Porsche Boxster A/C recharges.

Other Porsche Boxster A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Porsche Boxster A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems 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. 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. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1999 Porsche Boxster? 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 Boxster.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1999 Porsche Boxster A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Boxster 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Boxster A/C? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? 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 Boxster’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
