There is a freon leak somewhere near the rear evaporator. I cannot afford to pay shop. I need help accessing the unit and replacing it. I plan to take it to a shop to have it recharged.

Take it to the dealer, this issue should be repaired by the dealer due to "recall" of the evap core prematurely rusting out. They repaired my free of charge.

I was able to get the evaporator replaced on warranty at a dealer. Thanks to this forum, I learned about the extended warranty on this problem - to 70,000 miles. It is important anyone else with this problem take advantage of the extended warranty. Otherwise the cost is around $450! I also recommend that anyone with a Chrysler van modify a plastic tray and glue it over the A/C lines behind the passenger side rear wheel to protect them from corrosion.
