Having an air conditioner problem, especially in summer, could very well be a small but very constraining detail. In the city centre, you willingly open the windows of your Mercedes Benz E Class to let in air, but once you get on fast roads, it soon becomes complicated.
It can sometimes blow hot air while you asked it cold air, or it could work intermittently.
You might not wish to pay repair costs without finding out if you could certainly do it by yourself to repair your Mercedes Benz E Class.
The purpose of this article is to make it possible for you detect these possible problems in order to solve them as promptly as possible.
First, we will try to focus on the symptoms you identify on the air conditioning failure of your Mercedes Benz E Class.
Different symptoms on your Mercedes Benz E Class air conditioner
You realize that it is no longer effective, for example:
It works initially to finally only return moisture and run out very very fast, or it works but with a particularly long time to cool effectively. Or also simpler, it basically does not cool down anymore.
First thing to think about at this point on your Mercedes Benz E Class, it is likely that the gas charge is too short. This could mean that there is a potential leak in the circuit. If this were the case, we strongly advise you to seek the advice of a specialist and not do this on your own, it carries great risks for your Mercedes Benz E Class and more importantly your own health.
This factor is partly owing to the wear and tear of time, but also to the level of quality of your air conditioning system. To put it plainly, if you have a top quality car, you are theoretically much less bothered with this type of problem.
Also make sure you keep the air conditioning in good condition all year round.
What does that mean? Plainly use it from time to time for short moments throughout the year, which allows to avoid a “rust” of the system on your Mercedes Benz E Class. It uses up slightly more fuel, but since replacing your air conditioning system is much more expensive, you benefit in the long run.
Different problems on your Mercedes Benz E Class air conditioner
Next let’s look at some of the difficulties you may face on your Mercedes Benz E Class. Bear in mind that your air conditioner system is a very complex system, made up of a multitude of parts that can potentially lead to failure.
First, as outlined above, you may have a gas leak and as a result no pressure in the system.
Also, it is therefore possible that your compressor is out of order. Same observation as above, it is no longer possible to compress the gas, as a result no more pressure in the system.
Attached to this compressor of your Mercedes Benz E Class, a pulley enables it to rotate. If this one were to stop working, a chain reaction would happen with the compressor stopping, and consequently as mentioned above, no gas compression, no pressure…
We realize here that everything is related and that each piece has a essential importance, just like a chain work, a single missing link and the whole chain is stopped.
Another sensitive point, still on the theme of pressure, if by chance a too high pressure was felt in the circuit, a sensor will then be activated in order to stop the operation for safety. We can imagine here the work of a protection fuse on the electrical circuit of your Mercedes Benz E Class.
Regarding the temperature sensor, there may also be a failure. Just imagine that it is no longer capable of identify the temperature of the inside of your Mercedes Benz E Class. As a result, it does not detect what to give the computer as information, which will lead to the air conditioning being turned off as a result of the lack of consistent data to be dealt with. Here again the air conditioning will have been turned off by the computer for safety reasons in order in order to avoid improbable situations, for example, where it is considered hot in your Mercedes Benz E Class and sends cold when it is the opposite.
If you were to employ a professional, here is an idea of the prices you would have to pay:
Let’s imagine that you recharge your air conditioning with gas, it varies from 40 to 60€.
If, on the other hand, you had to change your compressor, it would cost about 350€ new, much more affordable second-hand, around 150€.
So here is a set of complications you might face on your Mercedes Benz E Class, as you guessed, in most cases it is better to call on an expert to avoid potentially serious accidents. Remember that in the case of air conditioning, you work with compressed gas that is dangerous if you are not careful.
