If they replaced only the pressure switch or compressor, they shouldn't have (what'* with this cough stuff) touched any of the rad stuff. Checking that hose is a good idea, that'* more coolant than a bad burp job though.

Please read the link I posted, being a Series 2 it'* info you should know and keep in mind.

To my knowledge no one has ever found visible water in their oil when the upper intake has failed. However..we have seen bearing damage therefore water must have gotten into the system while not being obviously visible.

If the shop drained coolant, that'* not a mess up on the AC repair. That'* unnecessary work. Hopefully that'* the only issue.

Boosty, I was only saying that when the shop was in the process of installing the new compressor, that it was possible for them to hit the lower radiator hose with it being so close. I was coughing because some little shops are known to cause damage to something so that you will come back for more business.

Since you have filled it up, have you had the engine up to normal operating temperature? Reason I ask is some leaks don't leak unless its hot.
