I found pieces of the inlet pipe. Went under dash passenger side. Removed the glove compartment. Removed the first big black box from the A/C lines. Saw the cable from the climate switch cable. Looks like I have to disconnect that as well in order to this black casing out.

It is a tight fit to get the box back enough to release the lines.
