Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
Ew. You chose an expensive car to have this to happen to.
Well, the evaporator is located behind the console and dashboard, and requires a complete disassembly of the dash board area.
It's possible for one technician to do it, but the last time I saw one done was at my local a/c garage. They were working on the city's vehicle, and it was a Dodge Dakota, late model.
It had the same problem as yours, a leaky evaporator.
They had about 30 hours into it at $50 per hour. The evaporator
was cheap, but the labor to change it is not.
Good luck on this one.

Remove the filter lid (A), then pull out the dust and pollen filters (B).
Pull out the evaporator temperature sensor (C) from the evaporator fins.
Remove the screws, carefully separate the upper housing (D) from the lower housing (E), then remove the evaporator core (F).
If necessary, remove the expansion valve (G). Use a second wrench to hold the other fitting on the valve so the evaporator line won't twist. Leave the first fitting loosely connected so you can use it to hold the valve while you loosen the second fitting.
Reassemble the evaporator in the reverse order of disassembly, and note these items:
