When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Volkswagen vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Volkswagen Cabriolet
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet 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 suspect a leak, we’ll send a U/V dye through your A/C system or use a “sniffer” to find the leak. What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Volkswagen Cabriolet 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.
While your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet’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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Volkswagen 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 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Typical A/C problems also 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 be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet? 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 Cabriolet.
Chill out. Our technicians are trained to inspect and repair 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C systems. Stop by today to enjoy some free air conditioning and an A/C performance check.
