Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Your steering wheel feels like it's burning your hands. 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 — that’s who! We know our way around Volkswagen vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2019 Volkswagen. Steer your Volkswagen GTI to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2019 Volkswagen GTI A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a 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.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Volkswagen GTI A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
While your 2019 Volkswagen GTI’s air conditioner is being serviced, 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. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Volkswagen guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system, and once we’ve done a final test on the system ourselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 2019 Volkswagen GTI A/C recharges.
You may think warm air is the only potential Volkswagen GTI A/C problem you’ll have, but you may notice other issues, too. Other common A/C problems 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 be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 2019 Volkswagen GTI? 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. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your GTI — without all the sweat puddles!
