AC leak behind rear passenger wheel

Hi Toyota Nation People!

I found a significant leak in small aluminum pipe located behind rear passenger wheel. The AC gas drains down and stains bigger rubber tubing, but it comes out from smaller tubing just above. Both pipes are connected to the same device, not so sure what -evaporator maybe?
Does anybody know how to remove damaged pipe? What pipes are connect to? Any other info needed for the repair procedure, AC drawing maybe, please?
See pictures below. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

I took off about 10 inches of plastic cover from the pipe and feeled the gas leak. I am as good mechanic as my son musician, so any advise is appriciated.
Thanks!
