I would replace every bit of rubber vacuum line in there. Your evaporator is probably covered in dust and debris, and there won't be a more convenient time to clean it. Actually, it wouldn't be a bad idea to clean out the ducts and evaporator box too. Could you take some pictures for everyone?

Also may want to replace the foam on the defroster flap so that it will stop blowing little foam bits randomly(at least my SD did...).
