Ever watch Top Gear on BBC? They have a clever way of handling this...

Not entirely sure about the Buick, but I'd imagine it's similar to the Caprice, and on that vehicle, there is a small hole on the passenger side, around where the evaporator is, that you can see from the bottom. I've had to get a small fish tape or other wire in there and bust up the dirt that has gotten down there. Check to make sure your screens are in good shape and are preventing dirt and larger objects from going down there. Once you break it up, run some water down there, or if you are going to take off some of the vents up top, you might be able to get a pressure washer in there, depending on geometry. If you have trouble locating things, let me know and I'll try and get a picture of what I'm talking about on my car.
