[DML] How hard is an a/c accumulator to replace?

I have a slow A/C leak that seems to go through a can of Freeze 12 every few months. Had it 
for the last year since I got the car. I have ordered the equipment to leak test (halogen 
sniffer) and evacuate (vacuum pump) my system as well as the gauges to refill it with R12. 
Haven't had time to do it yet, but while I was working on the brakes this weekend I was 
pushing on connections on the accumulator and when touching the low pressure switch it 
hisses and bubbles out what looks to be green fluid. I am guessing this is my leak? Still going 
to use the sniffer and find anything else. My question is, how hard is it to replace the 
accumulator once the A/C is evacuated? Is it hard to get it up an in where its located? Any 
tips or tricks? Thanks.
