Its not that cut and dried, First you will need the refrigerent recovered, then take the old one out. It should be in the small line entering the evaporator. Take it out, if there is metal shavings on it, then you need to replace the compressor and flush the condenser, or replace the condenser. the short end (looking at the o-ring) goes in towards the rear of the car. Tne you will need sit evacuated with a vacuum pump and recharged with the proper amount of refridgerent and oil. Its really a job for a A/C shop. Its not a job for Backyard Bob.

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.

Find orifice tube

Usually the orifice tube is in the lower metal line going to the condenser, possibly behind the grille. The line is bulged out wider where the tube is.

I have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe my orifice tube will not fit unless I take the o ring off. Now I know that I got the right part. If i take the o ring off it fits perfect, so what do i do????

First look inside the tube and see if there is any debris left from the old orifice tube. Then, lubricate the new orifice tube and O-ring with A/C oil before pushing it into the tube.

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.
