Ford Windstar AC Orifice Tube Location

Save

A Ford Windstar's air conditioning orifice tube is also know as an expansion tube. The component contains a filter and it screens out particles, such as dirt, grit and metal shavings, in the air from within high-pressure line. The orifice tube should be removed and replaced after all refrigerant has been discharged from the air conditioning system. The tube is located in the Windstar's engine compartment.

  • Release the Windstar's hood latch. Open and secure the hood.

  • Look toward the center of the engine compartment and locate two sets of aluminum pipes. The larger of the two pipes is the low-pressure line. The thinner is the high-pressure line.

  • Follow the high-pressure line to the evaporator. At the end the line is the orifice tube.

Tips & Warnings

  • Removing the orifice tube, as well as other components in the general area, requires a special set of tools. Consult a vehicle-specific manual for further information.
