You will need to remove the entire dash assembly to replace the evaporator core, unless you have a really good understanding about such work I would leave it to a professional, if you still want to do the job yourself post any questions you have about removal of the dash and I will try to help as much as possible.

    No drawings that I can find, you may want to join the website, factory manuals are available there, along with full illustrations of the job, I have used it for my Corvette, well worth the $35 I paid for access to the technical material.

Could a missing flow straightener prevent a/c from cooling?

No . it will not affect the cooling. If the compressor was replaced because of internal failure it is possible that there is metal stuck in the TX valve orifice preventing full fluid flow to allow the evaporator to work properly. Basically how an ac system works is this . There is gas in the system. A compressor turns this gas to a liquid in the condenser. This is achieved by the TX valve restricting the flow to the evaporator ( bit under the dash). As there is a low pressure in that unit from the compressor trying to suck the gas out then the liquid is converted back to gas ( boiling off quickly from the heat in the car) which cools the air around the evaporator . The process is repeated . IF the tx valve becomes blocked or overloaded by excessive compressor oil then you have problems with cooling.. Have it checked out by an accredited ac specialist shop as the differating pressures between the suction and high pressure sides of the compressor will reveal why it is not cooling.

You'll have to replace the evaporator if it leaks. The part is kind of expensive but is available aftermarket. Use 134A. I can likely post the removal procedure.

Plugged drain tube.

Check under the hood, on the firewall, passenger side. Tube comes off the bottom of the evaporator housing (this is the box where the a/c lines enter the firewall). Usually a rubber tube that directs condensation from the evaporator housing to the outside. This tube often plugs with dirt.

Dodge caravan 02 -a/c evaporator{front}

I don't know of a step by step sheet for this procedure. This job will require you to pull a vacuum and then do an electronic leak check once it is completed. This is an expensive repair, so you must weigh the possiblities of doing without air , or paying a technician to do it properly for you.
