Faulty Air Con Whistling

The air conditioning in my Punot has been whistling when it is turned on for the last few weeks. It'd due a service in October so I was going to get it sorted out then, but thought I'd see if anyone knew what the problem might be.

It whistles when turned on.
When the clutch is pressed the noise goes away most of the time.
It cools very lightly when it is set to the coldest setting. I.e. you can just about tell after it has been on for a few minutes.
It was fully working until a few weeks ago and was regassed in June/July time.
It sounds like something is slipping, but not knowing how the air con works I'm not sure.

Any advice greatfully received.
