Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Smart EQ fortwo A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Smart vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2019 Smart A/C systems. Steer your Smart EQ fortwo to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2019 Smart EQ fortwo 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. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Smart EQ fortwo A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your A/C system has a leak, we’ll find and repair it.
While your 2019 Smart EQ fortwo’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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Smart 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 ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2019 Smart EQ fortwo A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Smart EQ fortwo A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2019 Smart EQ fortwo? 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 EQ fortwo.
