    Just to round off this thread, I went and bought a pressure gauge and as I suspected, zero pressure in the system. Added some R134a refrigerant (my system was converted a few years ago) and immediately the compressor engaged and there was a click from the compressor clutch on selecting AC, but showed almost no pressure. Put some more in and now seems to work fine.

    System seems to hold pressure fine so no leaks. Seems like they simply forgot to re-gas the AC after the engine out. Annoying, particularly as they charged me for a re-gas over and above the cost of the service. Few months ago now so tough to prove it hasn’t somehow ALL leaked out. Kind of doubt it though.
