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.
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.
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!
