When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Who can fix my Volkswagen GTI A/C?” Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know Volkswagen vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2007 Volkswagen. Bring your Volkswagen GTI to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care
In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2007 Volkswagen GTI A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called 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 GTI 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.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2007 Volkswagen GTI, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). 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 ready to get back on the road. Our technicians are trained to efficiently perform 2007 Volkswagen GTI A/C recharges.
Warm air isn't the only Volkswagen GTI A/C problem you may encounter. Typical A/C problems also include 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 suggest a leak, a blown fuse, or a damaged compressor clutch. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2007 Volkswagen GTI? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your A/C problems. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your GTI’s A/C!
