Unless in doing the work on the engine the garage disturbed and didn't reconnect a power steering pipe properly somewhere or something like that? Were there any issues with fluid leaking before the engine work was done?

I wouldn't think any pas stuff been disturbed,I didn't touch any part of mine when I had the head off.
Maybe they let engine drop a bit far with mount off so it's stressed pipe connection on resavoir or its just coincidence a hose has gone?
