The evaporator coil was leaking and had to be replaced. The part itself was around $300 or so, but the labor was quite expensive as they had to remove the front seats and the dash board to be able to work comfortably on the system. After this was finished they had to evac/recharge the AC system. All of these costs are included in the $1170 figure that I gave.
