The evap coil can be changed. However, depending on what kind of A/C unit you are talking about, it might make more sense to replace the whole unit. Also, before you invest in the time it takes to do the work of replacing the coil, make sure the rest of the unit is in good condition.

To replace the strut you have to jack up the car on the side you want to do and take off the wheel. Then, take it loose from the strut tower on the top. There are 3 or 4 nuts. Then take it loose from the steering knuckle on the bottom. The whole strut assembly lifts out. To replace the coil you have to have a strut compressor. It compresses the coil spring so the top of the strut can come off. Once the top of the strut is exposed the coil can be taken off the strut.
