It is plugged directly into the orifice on the 94 model. I would expect it to be the same on all year models unless it has fallen out or something.

There is no orifice tube on that car. It uses an expansion valve located in the evaporator case under the dash on the passenger side.

What orifice tube? An orifice tube is part of the AC system pull off the lines going into the accumulator. You'll see it. DoratheExplorer

It is in the tube going into the evaporator. You must disconnect the tube from the accumulator.

It is located inside of a line that routes off of the condenser and splits between the front and rear A/C sections. The line with the orifice tube heads to the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle. You'll see a crimped area on the line, where the orifice tube is located. I don't believe you can easily replace the orifice tube without cutting/repairing the line or replacing the whole line assembly. The line has several bends negating pulling the orifice tube out. Pretty inconvenient. The rear A/C uses an expansion valve.

It doesn't have an orifice tube. It has an expansion valve that is located inside of the evaporator box. The evaporator assembly will have to be removed and taken apart to replace the expansion valve.

It is located in the liquid line connection tube at the evaporator. (Lower, smaller diameter, tube connector at bottom of evaporator). The accumulator / drier usually needs to be removed to gain access.

The orifice tube is located on the inlet port or the primary evaporator on the passenger side of the firewall. It is nearly hidden behind/between the heater vertical hoses.

There is no expansion valve. There is an orifice tue. It is located in the inlet tube of the evaporator core.

User Avatar

It's located on the left side fender well right before you get to the battery, look down and you will see a a/c line disconnect that line and it will be inside, you will needle nose pliers to pull the orifice tube out. >>> (your a/c system has to free of all pressure before you disconnect that line!!!!!)

It slides into the end of the tube on the condenser.

This year does not use an orifice tube but a expansion valve instead. This is located under the hood on the passenger side where the Refrigerant lines go into the evaporator under cowl (dash area) looks like an aluminum block. If it did have an orifice tube it would be located in the same place only inside the high side refrigerant line, or the smaller of the two lines and can be unbolted and separated to get to the orifice tube.
