Both of the above.

Might also need the fans and radiator, headlight and bumper off to have enough clearance to get it out, let alone back in again :-\

Ahh that ones already been done and Iíve changed both the Hp and Lp valves too,  but it Wonít stop leaking out of the lp valve and Iíve tried a couple of them and put a tap down to clean the thread. The pipes are joined on the compressor and the other end seems to disappear into the bulkhead Iím wondering whether the dash has to come out to get at the evaporator to remove them😟

Have you considered finding someone to splice in a new section without removing the whole piece?

On the bulkhead behind the engine...

You've the car there, follow the pipe :y

It might be partly obscured by the wiper mechanism.

 There's a circlip we're they join, the pipe has a piece that rotates, behind that, think there's a plastic washer covering the circlip.
