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

the orfice tube is locate in the line between condenser and evaporator. near the spring lock coupling. you must unbolt the cruise servo and overflow bottle, reposition them out of way and you will see the line connection..the orfice is inside line near that uniion. the ac system must be evacuated prior to removal, and recharged afterwards..

Check the lines coming out of the condenser . One of them has a crimped spot,that is where the orifice is located. Good luck.

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..
