    Comments about ToughOne Orifice Tube:

    In case noone has mentioned it to you yet, you MUST change the orifice tube and the drier/accumulator when you change the compressor on any vehicle. If you don't, you're asking for problems down the road. It's very easy to do and isn't very expensive considering the end result being cool air conditioning. As with the compressor and the drier/accumulator, installation ids quick and easy and shouldn't be a problem for any do it yourself mechanic. Don't spend your money when you don't have to.

      Comments about ToughOne Orifice Tube:

      Got this to replace the old one on my '99 ford ranger after an AC flush. Rented to the tool from Advance Auto Parts so I wouldn't have to use needle nose pliers and possibly break it. The replacement went really smooth. On my '99 ranger (and a '96 ranger we did as well) it was located on the bottom line coming from the condenser. After disconnecting the line, mine was inserted back a ways toward the condenser out of sight (was visible on the '96). Pretty easy to find and change.

        Where is the location of the orifice tube on 2004 ford explorer sport trac 4.0L

          A:

          The orifice tube on your Ford Explorer should be located in the condenser to the evaporator line. The orifice tube will change the high pressure liquid refrigerant into a low pressure liquid refrigerant. Once you separate this line at the stationary fitting and flare nut, you can pull the orifice tube out with a pair of needle nose pliers. Try not to break the old one while removing it or you will need to get an extractor tool from a parts store. Change out the old O-rings with new ones and coat the new ones in refrigerant oil prior to installing. Installation is the reverse of removal. When done with repair, do not forget to have the system evacuated with a vacuum pump, making sure it holds it's vacuum reading for a period of time (meaning no leaks in system), then recharged fully with refrigerant which should be R-134A.

          Hi Gordo, glad to assist you! The orifice tube on your Ford Ranger Edge will be located in the bottom tube coming off the condenser. You can not tell by looking at the line from the outside. Once you loose the nut and pull the tubes apart you will see the end of the orifice.
