I believe the orifice tube on this model requires the a/c pipe to be cut to install a new tube. You need to discharge the system, replace the tube, then evacuate miosture with a vacuum pump, then recharge with R134A refirgerant. Not a job for a non technical person.
The oriifce is in the line just before the evaporator that is in your car a/c heater case. It is where the liquid refrigerant turns into a vapor as it comes out of the orifice and then it absorbs heat from the air going into you car, thus blowing cold air. Moisutre in the warm air condenses and as he iar gets cold and it drains out of your evaporator and out the drain & onto the ground

There is one orifice tube for the font air. It is located in the a/c line coming from the condenser to the evap. core. the rear a/c has and expansion valve attached to the rear evap. core. Hope this helps.

it is located in the high pressure AC line at the AC evaporator core inlet. The high pressure line is the smaller of the two AC lines that come from the AC compressor on the engine..

The orifice tube should be located inside of the metal AC line from the condenser. The discharge hose (from the compressor) connects to the top on the condenser (inlet). The orifice tube mounts in the bottom of the condenser (outlet to the evaporator). The outlet tube of the condenser has a 45º upward angle. If it is not in that location it will be farther out on the same line where it connects. Here is a diagram that might help.
