A/C Service for Volkswagen Vanagon

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 it's burning your hands. Sweat soaks the driver's seat. “Who can fix my Volkswagen Vanagon A/C?” you wonder, as the sun beats through the windshield. Firestone Complete Auto Care — that’s who! We know our way around Volkswagen vehicles, and our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C systems. Come to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care in your Volkswagen Vanagon

During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C system to see if repair work is required. 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." A “sniffer” isn’t a technician with a good nose! It’s a machine that’s used on different parts of your Volkswagen Vanagon A/C system to detect refrigerant fumes escaping from the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

Vanagon A/C Recharge

Let's say we repair your 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C system. We will also perform 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 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 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C recharges.

Common Volkswagen Vanagon A/C Problems

Hot air is a common Volkswagen Vanagon A/C problem, but it’s not the only issue you might 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. What about those (somewhat unpleasant!) smells coming through the A/C vents in your 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon? This can mean you have mold in your evaporator case, or it may indicate that it’s time to change your cabin air filter. 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 Vanagon — without all the sweat puddles!

1984 Volkswagen Vanagon A/C System FAQs

  • How do I make my Vanagon 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.
  • What’s making my Vanagon A/C put out warm air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Vanagon’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
