When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Renault R18i?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Renault vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1985 Renault. Bring your Renault R18i to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1985 Renault R18i A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Renault R18i A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1985 Renault R18i’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Renault’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1985 Renault R18i A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Renault R18i A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Another common A/C problem is 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. And smelly A/C in a 1985 Renault R18i? 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 R18i’s A/C!
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1985 Renault R18i A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
