Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. “Who can fix my Volkswagen Cabrio A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Volkswagen vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1998 Volkswagen A/C systems. Steer your Volkswagen Cabrio to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio 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 any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Volkswagen Cabrio A/C system that can identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do 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 Volkswagen’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Volkswagen Cabrio A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If your A/C system blows cold air first but then it turns warm, this may suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. And smelly A/C in a 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio? 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. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Cabrio.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
