On the front unit, the orifice is located in the inlet tube of the evaporator core. Find the line that runs from the condensor to the evap core. Undo that connection, and the orifice is inside the evap core tube right there.On the rear unit. there could be either an expansion valve or an orifice. I am looking at the Ford service manual, and it doesn't say. But either one will be accessed the same way. Remove the left quarter trim, and look at the lines going into the evap core. If there is an expansion valve, you will see it right away on the inlet tube(small diameter tube). If there is an orifice, it will be located inside the inlet tube of the evap core, just like the front unit.

Where is the orifice tube in a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe?

Its hard to tell exactly, but if you look at the hoses and metal tubes of the a/c system you can tell. Find the small hard line running from the condenser (radiator looking thing in the front) follow it until you find a connector where it goes from that small line to a larger line and your orifice tube will be located there. Hope this helps.

Where is the orifice tube in a 93 Chevy Suburban?

If its a single evaporator unit (front air only). then it is probably located in the condensor. If it is a dual unit (front and back), the front orfice tube will probably be after the "Y" in the compressor high pressure line, and prior to the accumulator. The rear unit does not use an orifice, but rather a Thermal expansion valve.
