Question about Cars & Trucks
Replacing the whole a/c system(compressor/accumulator etc.) in 2002 mustang 3.8 V6 Parts house sold me an orifice tube repair kit to splice in the line. I have no directions as to where to cut and make the splice.
You do not cut & splice into any A/C System
You replace with the oe type parts only when
The orifice is a screen inside the hose connection
& can be cleaned,not necessary to always replace

Does it have crimp marks on the tube about 3 inches from the fitting?If so,that's where the orifice tube is.Most of the time,you simply disconnect the fitting,pull out the orifice tube & install a new one.Tip:if it has a lot of black junk on it,flush the system or you will end up having the same problem again very soon.Good luck,

Testimonial: "Yeah it was actually a lot easier to change than I thought it would be. Now my compressor while recharging it isn't kicking on. Is there a way to get it going again or am I doomed to have to get a new one of those too? lol thanks"
