That section that sits in the drain pan?....that was common as the tubing would turn green and rot out.

Normally the compressor stays in place but often the condensor fan motor comes out for more room to access the tubing. High side must be flushed out, new drier welded in, not a bad job is you are good at welding in tight places without setting wiring and such on fire

Removing the compressor looks to be the best way to get to the bad spot,does that spot need to be cut out or just sodering it will work.

Can't weld the area where the corresion is, replacing that whole section of tubing is best and weld with good clean ends.
