A/C Service for Volkswagen Passat

When you get in the car on a hot summer day, the last thing you want is a broken air conditioner. Your steering wheel feels like lava. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Volkswagen Passat A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know Volkswagen vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1999 Volkswagen A/C systems. Steer your Volkswagen Passat to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1999 Volkswagen Passat 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 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" is a machine that's run along parts of your Volkswagen Passat A/C system that can detect any refrigerant fumes that might be leaking out from the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.

Recharge the A/C in Your Passat

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1999 Volkswagen Passat, 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 use Volkswagen’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant and after one final test to be sure the system is cooling properly, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1999 Volkswagen Passat A/C recharges.

Other Volkswagen Passat A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only Volkswagen Passat A/C problem you may 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. 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 1999 Volkswagen Passat? 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. So, chill out. We're here to help you get the blast back in your Passat’s A/C!

Questions About 1999 Volkswagen Passat A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Passat 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.
  • Why is my Passat 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? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Passat’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
