If presented with a vehicle with the air con belt removed 'for economy' I walk - if not run - away. With the air con switched off no power is sapped from the engine or electrical system, so I see it as an attempt to cover up one or more serious problems with the setup. The only exception to this rule has been my current US spec Dodge Ram Day Van. I wasn't bothered if it worked or not, but was pleasantly suprised to have it work perfectly once it had been recharged. As previously mentioned: It's an old (pre '93) r12a system, but has been refilled with r417a which is compatible.
