Where is the ac orifice tube located in a volvo 240 93

Also at the part store they show 2 or 3 types almost look the same. Will there make a difference which one you use or do you have to mach the up?
Will the 740 have it in the same location?

There is no orifice tube, these system used a thermal expansion valve behind the dash in the passenger footwell. It should be easy to spot, they are usually covered in a black, tar-like substance.

Same post again? Look at two AC pipes entering heater box. One is low side (large) and one is high side (smaller). Disconnect the high side pipe union and inside the pie going into heater box is the orifice tube.

You'll need to have someone check the refrigerant charge with a manifold gauge.
If the low-pressure side is lower than it should be but the high-pressure side is normal or showing higher than it should, your orifice tube may be clogged.
Seriously, start by having the refrigerant pressures checked.

Orfice tube location


the fixed orifice is located in the inlet tube to the evaporator core, this is where the small high pressure AC line from the compressor connects to the tube sticking out of the engine firewall, u will most likely need a special tool to remove it, here is a web link to the tool, don't damage the evaporator core by trying to remove the orifice tube without this if it is stuck down in the tube.
