A/C Repair Service for Your Subaru Legacy

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Subaru Legacy?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Subaru vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2005 Subaru Legacy A/C systems. Steer your Subaru Legacy to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2005 Subaru Legacy A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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 Subaru Legacy A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Legacy A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 2005 Subaru Legacy A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Then, they’ll use Subaru’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2005 Subaru Legacy A/C recharges.

Other Subaru Legacy A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Subaru Legacy A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems 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 your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns 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 2005 Subaru Legacy? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Legacy — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2005 Subaru Legacy A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Legacy 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Legacy A/C? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Legacy's A/C system.
