The orifice tube is located inside the evaporator tube at the evaporator. To remove and install the orifice tube, you will need a special tool: Orifice Tube Remover and Installer or Equivalent. For an image location view, click here:

My apologies. This is the only location I am showing for this vehicle. I will opt-out and forward you to another Tech that may better assist. Sorry for any inconvenience. Sit tight one sec... someone will be with you shortly...

Hello different expert here

Look in the outlet of the condenser, usually that is where the tube is.. The fitting for the line is a little larger and you can see a small crimp in the line that holds the tube.

Let me know if that is what you are seeing.
