We’ve got experience with Subaru vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 2017 Subaru 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 2017 Subaru Legacy A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. 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. 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 detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

A/C Recharge for Subaru Legacy

Let's say we repair your 2017 Subaru Legacy 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Subaru's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you're ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2017 Subaru Legacy A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Subaru Legacy A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Subaru Legacy A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2017 Subaru Legacy? 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 Legacy — without all the sweat puddles!

2017 Subaru Legacy A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my Legacy 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 Legacy 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 can cause an A/C system leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Legacy’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.
