Question about 1998 Ford Escort
I'm trying to load my a/c unit w/freon and somebody recommended me to replace the orifice tube.
The orifice tube is inside the line going to the evaporator you have to disconnect the lines to get to it you should change the accumulator tank because that's a very likely leak spot a/c systems never need freon unless there's a leak in the system and that tank is almost always responsible buy a can with dye in it to get the system charged enough to get the compressor to cycle the leak will show up wherever it is then repair and have the system evacuated with a vacuum pump do not skip this step you will have a bad result of blowing seals in the compressor or the orings on the lines plus you just spent $$to fix it do it right one time ok good luck stephen

the diagram is located in the engine compartment under the hood.
Clean off the surfaces and it is one of the stickers there.

You have to basically remove the bumper cover in order to do this.
You will need a 10mm socket with a couple extensions and a phillips screwdriver.
First remove the plastic shield inside the wheel well using the phillips screwdriver.
There are 3 10mm bolts that have to be removed the attach the bumper cover to the fender. The first one is just inside the newly uncovered hole. For the other 2 you will need the extensions. They are located all the way back in the hole beside the headlight assembly. If you look in with a flashlight You will see 3 bolts down in there. One of them will have a 1/2 inch spacer on it. Do not worry about this bolt, it holds the header panel on. The other 2 bolts are the ones you need to remove. Once this is done, if you need to remove the bolts under the hood that hold the bumper cover on the header panel. You should now have adequate movement to move the bumper cover out of the way of the 3 10mm bolts on the headlight assembly that were blocked.

It is on or near the reciever dryer or shiny looking thing at the right rear of the engine compartment. You need gauges to correctly add refigerant as you can overcharge it.
