Default Where is the orifice tube?

Another thing I didn't mention in my other AC thread was about the orifice tube. I bought a new one for two bucks, but I dont know where it is. A picture would be appreciated, otherwise i thorough description is in order when it comes to AC parts. Thanks.

The orifice tube is in the line coming from your receiver drier going to your condensor. It will be near the condensor in the line.

Do i have to remove a fitting on one of the lines to get to the orifice tube?

yep...see the line coming from the drier next to your passanger side strut tower....it is silver with the black cap on it...follow that line all the way down to the condenser...ti'* between the radiator and the block...looks just like a radiator.
