9 is the orifice. Freon is headed toward the evaporator in the car. The orifice has an arrow on it. Good luck, please rate. Thanks A/C Evaporator Core Orifice NOTE: The A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) should be replaced whenever an A/C compressor (19703) is replaced.

The A/C evaporator core orifice has the following characteristics:

  • is color-coded orange
  • has a diameter of 1.46 mm (0.058 inch)
  • is located in the condenser to evaporator tube (19835)
  • has filter screens located on the inlet and outlet ends of the tube body
The A/C evaporator core orifice is the restriction in the refrigerant circuit that creates the pressure drop necessary for cooling by metering the flow of liquid refrigerant into the A/C evaporator core (19860), which reduces the pressure. Operation is as follows:
  • The inlet filter screen acts as a strainer for the liquid refrigerant flowing through the A/C evaporator core orifice.
  • O-rings on the A/C evaporator core orifice prevent the high-pressure liquid refrigerant from bypassing the A/C evaporator core orifice .
  • Adjustment or services cannot be made to the A/C evaporator core orifice assembly. It must be replaced as a unit.

LOCATION OF ORIFICE TUBE ON A 96 MERCURY VILLAGER 3.3L


The orifice is located in the small tube going in the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle. You will need a special tool to unlock the tube to get to the orifice. Good idea to wear safety glasses when working on air conditioners. Good luck.

Where is orifice tube located on my 1994 Buick regal?


Hello cptlarry: My name is Roger and I can help you. On the passenger side of the engine compartment. Locate the high side A/C line. This will be a small line called the liquid line. Follow it to the condenser located in front of the radiator. After removing the freon you can split the A/C coupling at the radiator. There are two lines split the one that goes back to the firewall. The orifice tube will be in the condenser end of the line.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer as this way we know you received the correct information. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Orifice Tube for 2000 Impala


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,
