Question about 1997 Chevrolet Suburban
Hi, if i am correct, this vehicle does not have a filter for the freon in the rear a/c system. the front a/c compressor produces the pressure and suction for the rear system and there is a filter/drier called an accumulator. also there is another filter called an orifice tube. both of these items are located near the passenger firewall. the accumulator is a larger aluminum cylinder which has two hoses going to it from the compressor, and the orifice tube is located inside the high pressure discharge hose assembly near the condensor(mounted in front of the radiator). but, as far as the rear a/c goes, this vehicle uses an evaporator expansion valve for the rear a/c on most models. now, if i'm wrong, and there is actually an orifice tube in the rear, you would find it inside the hose at the very rear, near the exhaust tailpipe on the passenger side. you would have to discharge the whole system to inspect. might want to take to a shop, good luck.
