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. “Who can fix my Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Volkswagen vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1988 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 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C system that can detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet’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. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Volkswagen guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Volkswagen Cabriolet A/C problem you may encounter. 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. And smelly A/C in a 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Cabriolet’s A/C!
