Over the last month my 05 Maggie wasn't holding a ac charge. Had it looked at by a local mechanic and told me the evaporator was leaking and was told the whole dash has to come out to replace. Has anyone had this same problem ?

Check with Moparcharger06, Adam, he's the main man mechanic around here.

He got my ac working.

havent had it happen, but it is a common issue in all cars. It has to do with the way they design the condensate drip pan... Yes you need to remove the dash to get access to it. If you are going to have it replaced, you may want to suck it up, and replace the heater core at the same time so you don't run into issues with that down the road, and have to go through the same thing...

I couldnt agree with this more. Nothing sucks more than having to replace a heater core. If you are going to do one, just do them both if possible. Peace of mind for the future. Plus the heater core shouldnt cost that much.
