The complete dash will have to be unbolted and pulled away from the fire wall to gain access to the evaporator which is bolted to the fire wall behind the dash.
$108 is the cost of the lower case and evap core. Either way, the dash will have to be removed to do the repair if you are doing the complete case or just the evap with the lower case.
