Nearest A/C Repair for Your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle

A/C Service for Volkswagen Beetle

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Volkswagen Beetle?" Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Volkswagen vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2017 Volkswagen. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Volkswagen Beetle

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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 Volkswagen Beetle A/C system to detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

A/C Recharge for Volkswagen Beetle

While your 2017 Volkswagen Beetle’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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Volkswagen's recommendations. 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 are trained to efficiently perform 2017 Volkswagen Beetle A/C recharges.

Common Volkswagen Beetle A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Volkswagen Beetle A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. An A/C system that starts off blowing cold air but then turns warm 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 2017 Volkswagen Beetle? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Beetle — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2017 Volkswagen Beetle A/C Systems

  • Can I make my Beetle 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.
  • Why do I get hot air from my Beetle 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? 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 Beetle’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
