    evaporator

    The orfice tube is by the evaporator, look at the line, and you will see that their is crimp marks on the a/c evaporator tube, after you recovery the refrigerant break the line apart and you can pull out the tube with a pick or neeble nose pliers. Important make sure when you reinstall the long screen inlet end towards the condenser.

    ah, i was hoping you meant undo the bolts. I don't know about all the lines, but the ones i see all look like they bolt together. i guess that makes it a little easier to work on.

    unfortunately i took the car in for a leak test to figure out why it wasn't holding a vacuum, easy simple bad gasket. only one problem, i didn't put the orifice tube in, DOH. So i have a complete charge now, and a 2 dollar part sitting in the garage, silly me.

    well at least if I ever want to piss away more freon and money filling it back up I can put the tube in, lol...

    Would it be in the line connection below the line that comes from the dryer? I noticed the new dryer connects to something back at the firewall area. There was two connections, the dryer and one below it.

    is that the one?
