    I suspect its about the same as Jeep, Chrysler, and Dodge. Somewhat of a big job and PITA but not really hard. Just time consuming.

    Unlike the Chrysler junk, evaporators on our cars rarely fail. Even if they did, the evaporator is in the engine compartment - so the dash is irrelevant.

    The service manual shows removing the dash and has the evap core coming out from the inside.

    Hopefully that's not a GM service manual!

    Evaporator core R&R pays 2.8hrs. The instrument panel does NOT need to be removed.

    Well, I'll admit I've never replaced one on a 4th gen. But, yes the GM manual suggest instrument panel removal for 2000 to 2002 f-body. The 98 and 99 manual says it comes out through the glove box hole after removing the glove box. I suspect the same is true for the 2000-2002.
    I went out into the garage and looked at my car. It looks like the evap core is in the engine compartment but there is no way its coming out that way. There isn't any room. Even if the engine was out of the car, I don't think you could get it out that way.
    My labor time guide shows 2.1 hours warranty time and 5.9 hours retail customer pay time.

    I checked that also. Its exactly the same as the GM manual. Its pretty vague.

    Mitchell shows 2.8hrs. The core is in the engine compartment. You can remove it through the glove box opening, but you have to "modify" the heater/evaporator core cover - GM's documentation suggests to do this. The dash does not have to be removed on any 98-02.

    ^^^yeah after reading the instructions for a '98, that's what it sounds like and I kinda assumed the procedure is the same for the other years, regardless of the "updated" GM instructions.
    Good to know.

    Well like I said earlier, I doubt you'll ever find out. They pretty much never fail. Outside Chrysler products from the last 15-20 years, evaporators aren't a common leak source.
