Convenient & Local 2012 Smart Fortwo A/C Repair

A/C Service for Smart Fortwo

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Smart Fortwo A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We’ve got experience with Smart vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2012 Smart Fortwo A/C systems. Bring your Smart Fortwo to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2012 Smart 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 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 Smart Fortwo A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Fortwo A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2012 Smart Fortwo A/C system. We will also perform 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. 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 know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2012 Smart Fortwo A/C recharges.

Other Smart Fortwo A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Smart 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 2012 Smart Fortwo? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Fortwo — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2012 Smart Fortwo A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Fortwo air conditioner 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 Fortwo 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? 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 Fortwo’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
