2004 Toyota Camry 246,000 miles auto trans AC failed

Caelis

Hi Scotty, I have a 2004 Toyota Camry 246,000 miles auto trans. The AC compressor locked up. I replaced it but the new compressor was pulling a vacuum on suction side. I took it to a shop, they said the compressor was bad. I was thinking obstruction like in your flush the condenser video. I replaced the compressor again and took it to a different shop. They said bad expansion valve. Unlike your Camry expansion valve video, this looks like the entire dash needs to come out on the 2004? Is it possible to free the expansion valve? Do you think the condenser might be plugged. Anyway to know before throwing $100 parts?
Thanks, Love your work and help

Does it have a Orface tube inline by firewall? Research that first.
