Volkswagen Golf A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Volkswagen Golf?" Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Volkswagen vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 2013 Volkswagen Golf A/C systems. Steer your Volkswagen Golf to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2013 Volkswagen Golf 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 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” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Volkswagen Golf A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Golf A/C Recharge

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2013 Volkswagen Golf, 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Volkswagen's recommendations. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re good to go. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2013 Volkswagen Golf A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting Volkswagen Golf A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Volkswagen Golf A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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 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 2013 Volkswagen Golf? You could have a moldy evaporator case, or you may simply need a new cabin air filter installed. 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 Golf’s A/C!

2013 Volkswagen Golf A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Golf air conditioning colder? Here are a few quick ideas. Shut the passenger air vents and point the other vents directly toward you. Park your car in the shade and use a window sun blocker. Then visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for an A/C performance check and recharge.
  • What’s making my Golf 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? 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's A/C system.
