Scion xB 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. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Scion xB?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Scion vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2012 Scion xB A/C systems. Steer your Scion xB to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2012 Scion xB A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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 Scion xB A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.

xB A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2012 Scion xB A/C system. We will also perform 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Scion guidelines. The A/C system is recharged 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 2012 Scion xB A/C recharges.

Other Scion xB A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Scion xB A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 2012 Scion xB? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your xB’s A/C!

Questions About 2012 Scion xB A/C Systems

  • How do I make my xB 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.
  • What’s making my xB 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? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your xB’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.
  • Does my xB A/C use gas?  The air conditioning system in your xB does not use gasoline directly as a fuel source, but it does require some power from the engine, which indirectly affects your car's fuel consumption.
  • What does it mean if the A/C in my xB smells like vinegar? If a vinegar-like odor comes from your A/C, bacteria growth could be the culprit. Moisture accumulation in the air conditioning system of your xB creates a breeding environment for microorganisms.
  • Why does my xB’s A/C only work when the car is moving? A problem with one or more of your air conditioning or electrical system components could cause the A/C to only work when your xB is moving. You may be low on refrigerant, or the cooling fan could be faulty.
