Convenient & Local 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan A/C Repair

Volkswagen Tiguan A/C Repair

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. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my Volkswagen Tiguan?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with Volkswagen vehicles, and our qualified technicians can diagnose and service the A/C system in your 2016 Volkswagen. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Volkswagen Tiguan

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure. If we think there might be a leak, we'll run a special U/V dye through the system or use 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 Tiguan 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.

Tiguan A/C Recharge

While your 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan’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 use Volkswagen’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. Our technicians know how to keep your A/C in tip-top shape with 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan A/C recharges.

Other Volkswagen Tiguan A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Volkswagen Tiguan 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 you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this can mean there’s a malfunctioning compressor clutch, a leak, or a blown fuse. And smelly A/C in a 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan? 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 Tiguan — without all the sweat puddles!

Frequently Asked Questions for 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan A/C Systems

  • How do I make my Tiguan 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 Tiguan 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.
  • 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 Tiguan's A/C system.
