The accumulator looks like a can and the A/C hoses run into it,usually located on the driver side under the air box,the orifice tube is in the ac line..look for the tube to swell at a joint where it hooks together.

The expansion tube (orifice) is located at the condenser to evaporator line connection in the condenser. In the outlet of the condenser. Once you remove the line from the condenser, a 90 degree needle nose plyers is all you really need. Be carefull not to break it twisting it out.Look closely for three "dimples" in the line, and that is where the O tube will be.Before removing the line, you need to remove the Freon. Afterwards, evacuate and refill the system. Check out thanks.

Where is the location of the ac orifice tube on 06 chevy silverado


The orifice tube is located in the line of the high pressure side of the system it maybe at the condenser or in the high pressure line. You should be able to feel a crimp in the line and the is the stop for the orifice. I believe the o6 is in the line and as I said there is a crimp in the line where the orifice is located.

Location of orifice tube in 2000 chevy venture


best advice is the method i would use to located the orifice tube in the 2000 chevy venture. check the automotive repair book section in your local library. Most libraries have repair manuals on their automotive shelf section. find the a/c manual for your year and model car. make a copy of the page that has the information you need. you will need to make a copy because the library will not let those manuals be checked out. you might want to google for the location of the orifice tube location. I hope this helps.

What is the purpose, and what is the proper location of the orifice tube in the air conditioning system on my 1991 chevy silverado?


The orifice tube restricts the flow of refrigerant to the evaporator. This restriction allows high pressure liquid freon to change into low pressure freon before entering the evaporator. The orifice tube is located inside the hose running between the condenser and the evaporator. You'll need an orifice tube removal kit if you are looking to remove it.
