1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C Repair Near You

Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C Repair

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.

Recharge the A/C in Your Cabriolet

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.

Other Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C Problems

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.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C Systems

  • How can I make my Cabriolet 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 Cabriolet A/C put out warm air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • 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 Cabriolet’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
