Holy ****! That just looks scary. The interior of your GS is never supposed to look like that!!

All joking aside, great job on this DIY! I know exactly where I'm going if this ever happens to me... I'm praying it doesn't.

Thank you so much for taking the time to take all those pictures and sharing it. I wont be as nervous about taking out my dash now.

Edit: Please sticky this.

Great photos and text, it took a lot of nerve to go after this evaporator!
I've had a garage quote of $1400, it looks worth it. Doing a vacume test could reduce the risk of junk yard parts.

Thank you.

Wow just logged in lurking on lexus, I never got to fix my issue with leak from condenser just kept the plug off for a bit under the rug to sooth it out. I eventually ended up selling my gs for a beemer but I truly understand why the dealer was trying to charge so much after seeing this post. Great job dont know if I would have had the peanuts to do that myself lol.
