    i got a leak on the evaporator (inside the coil). Is there a way to repair the leak without cutting the pipe or replacing the whole thing?

    Leaks in evaps are tricky, reason being the condensate water. if coil is vertical, you mught attempt it, but any angle will cause a water leak from condensate "falling off" the fins instead of traveling down.

    I assume you mean a refrigerant leak from the finned area of the coil. If you can locate the leak, you can move the fins and get in there with with a torch and silfos to get it running. In the meantime, another coil could be ordered. Depends how old, warantee, the customer's budget, etc...
