Recharge A Mercedes Air Conditioning System With Refrigerant
One of the most common Mercedes air conditioning services in Plano is charging up the refrigerant. Even with no leak it is possible to lose a percentage of the refrigerant each year, so after a few years the A/C may not feel as cold as it once did in the past. However, before we just simply recharge the unit with refrigerant, we recommend giving the whole system a check-up to look for leaks from hoses, hose fittings, orifice tubes, evaporator, component seals, rings, any fittings, clamps, condenser, or couplings. These components can easily begin to leak due to the heat of the engine plus the hot and cold weather deteriorating the rubber parts. We can put the system under a vacuum test to see whether it can hold a vacuum. If it’s not keeping a vacuum, then it is leaking somewhere. Sometimes finding the leaks can take some detective work. We use a color dye with a black light or sometimes we use an electronic detector or sniffer to help us find where the leak is located. Once found, we are able to make the necessary repairs. When the refrigerant is low it can cause the compressor to cycle off. If the compressor makes the typical click noise, the clutch is working, but the refrigerant is too low or there is a leak and the compressor cannot stay on. A common A/C problem is slippage of the accessory belt or broken belt. The belt can easily be replaced or adjusted. Another symptom may be a squealing noise coming on when the A/C clutch tries to come on.
Replace A Mercedes Air Conditioning Compressor
Another possible A/C problem is a compressor lock up, which can be caused from an improper amount of refrigerant oil in the system. This can be the main cause of a lock up due to leaks, since the oil is the first thing to leak out of the system. If the system doesn’t have the proper amount of refrigerant oil, it can accelerate the deterioration of the vanes in the compressor. If the compressor is beginning to fail and already makes noises, the tiny vanes, cylinders, valves, piston rings, bearings inside the compressor can break down causing micro deposits of debris throughout the system including making deposits in the orifice tube, condenser, evaporator hose assemblies, and even the filter drier. It’s best to turn off the air conditioning right away even if it is cooling some, to minimize any damage. Bring it in for evaluation and repair before using it again. If ignored, it can cause major damage to the whole system. Also, if the whole system isn’t flushed out properly during its repair and the appropriate refrigerant oil added, the whole scenario could happen again with deposits hitting even the new compressor grinding it down to another failure. This is a repair best left up to the certified Mercedes technicians at Linear Automotive.
Repair A Mercedes AC Compressor Clutch
If you have the air on and the clutch engages, then you notice a small grinding noise coming from the compressor, it’s probably the clutch mechanism. The clutch can be replaced, since it is a separate part and can be replaced without disturbing any of the A/C mechanism. Linear Automotive proudly uses recommended factory OEM parts for repairs and services.
