If the air conditioner in your Mercedes is blowing hot air when it should be cooling or not working properly, it may be time to do some troubleshooting. In some cases, you may be able to diagnose the problem with your Mercedes’ AC yourself.
Below we’ll take a look at some common Mercedes Benz AC issues and provide some insight into whether you can handle the fix yourself or if you need to take it in to get professional care.
Troubleshooting Your Mercedes AC for Leaks
One of the first problem areas of a faulty AC is a leaky AC. If you see AC fluid in your parking spot or pooling in your garage under the car that may be the center of your issue. This fix could be as simple as replacing the valve for the AC and then adding freon back. If this does not address the problem it could mean more substantial failure is evident.
Mercedes AC Failure
One of the most common reasons a Mercedes AC will fail is due to the compressor. This system adds pressure to the system by compressing the refrigerant. The fluids then move to a condenser, a receiver-drier, and an expansion valve. If any, or multiple, areas of the system fail, you’ll be left with an AC that does not behave as it should.
