it would be unlikely to be able to see a leak in the evaporator core by just looking...if it's been leaking for a long time AND the system has been recharged repeatedly, then maybe. leak testing an ac system is best done with a halogen sniffer that you run around the connections and so forth...or by adding some flourescent dye to the refrigerant and then after running the system, looking it over with a black light.

everything is easier to check than the evaporator and as a rule it's always checked last.
