How can I access and clean the evaporator coil in our air conditioner?

The air conditioner evaporator coil box sits on top of the furnace and appears to simply be a sheet metal box with no obvious access panel or doors. The house was built in 1989 so I'm sure the AC unit is from the same year. Is this typical? Am I going to have to cut into the box or is this unnecessary? Was my unit simply not intended for this type of service? I can possibly provide pictures or model information if necessary.
