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. Your skin sticks to the driver’s seat. “Who can fix my Volkswagen Tiguan Limited A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care can! We know our way around Volkswagen vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2018 Volkswagen. Steer your Volkswagen Tiguan Limited to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care
During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited 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 think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use a "sniffer." What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your Volkswagen Tiguan Limited A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If your system has a leak, we can get it fixed.
When we perform an A/C repair on your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited, 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. 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 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited A/C recharges.
Hot air is a common Volkswagen Tiguan Limited A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might encounter. Typical A/C problems also 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 can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our technicians will work to solve your A/C problems to the best of their ability. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your Tiguan Limited — without all the sweat puddles!
