Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C Repair

There’s nothing worse than cranking your car air conditioner on a hot day — and discovering it’s broken. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C?” Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We know Volkswagen vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2017 Volkswagen. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen’s 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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." A "sniffer" is a machine that's run along parts of your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen 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.

Golf SportWagen A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, 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 after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C problem you may encounter. Another common A/C problem is weak airflow, which could indicate an old ventilation fan, a seal or hose that needs replacing, or mold buildup in your A/C system. 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. Don’t sweat it — we’re here to help you chill out again in your Golf SportWagen.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Golf SportWagen air conditioning 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 do I get hot air from my Golf SportWagen A/C? 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Golf SportWagen's A/C system.
