Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Renault R18i?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Renault vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 1986 Renault. Bring your Renault R18i to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1986 Renault R18i 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 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Renault R18i A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1986 Renault R18i’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 Renault's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1986 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. Typical A/C problems also include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. 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 1986 Renault R18i? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your R18i.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1986 Renault R18i A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
