Evaporator Coil Cleaning Help


Hi,
I noticed a musty smell when I turn on the AC, so I researched and found that my evaporator coil might need to be cleaned. So I opened up the panel where it should be, and it looks very different from the ones i have seen online. The ones I have seen are A-framed, and either this one has only one side or the other side is obscured and I need to take more things apart to get to it completely. Can someone look at the photos and let me know if what I see is the entire thing, or how I could access the other side of it? It is a Goodman unit from 2007.
thanks

you need to see it from the internal side. That is an a-frame, but you're seeing and accessing the outer side. That's not the side that clogs up. Might need to remove the return air plenum to access.

To my weak eyes, it looks like that coil is mounted to a gas furnace. If so, opening/removing the return plenum won't get access to the evap.
