You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Volkswagen vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2016 Volkswagen. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Golf SportWagen A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Volkswagen's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you're ready to get back on the road. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could mean you have a compromised seal, mildew or mold buildup, a loose or damaged hose, or a ventilation fan that needs to be replaced. 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 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Golf SportWagen’s A/C!

2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my Golf SportWagen air conditioner colder? For starters, use a sun-blocking shade in the windshield while you’re parked, or look for a shady parking spot. Closing all the passenger vents in your car can help redirect cold air toward you, cooling you off faster. Still need more chill? Head to Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • Why is my Golf SportWagen A/C blowing hot air? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Golf SportWagen’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
