Question about Mercury Cars & Trucks
Evacuate the system. Disconnect the AC line at the evaporator inlet. Remove orifice tube. Pull a vacuum and recharge. But, if the orifice tube is plugged, you're most likely wasting your time. You'll have to flush the entire system and see what comes out. In most cases you have to replace the condenser and accumulator as well. Whatever plugged the orifice tube will just re-plug it once you replace it

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

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

Actually, if you look under the dash board, near the steering column, there should be a box that has the code printed on it.
