    Its the 99 Tahoe.

    I'm getting ready to change out the headlights before church...so I'll stick my head around there looking for the dimpled pipes.

    I went on ebay and ordered one for less than $3 shipped
    99 Tahoe - the family truckster
    99 Xploder - the trash truck
    01 Windstar - bought back by Ford :party:
    01 Saturn SL1 150K miles, 34mpg :glasses:

    I tried looking for a diagram for that model truck but couldn't find one....

    Maybe get a Chilton's or Haynes manual, and see where the thing is located, but it is probably coming out of one of the condenser tubes.

    Well, when I had the grille off and was looking around, I found NO 'dimpled' locations, but the only place that looked feasible was the lower connection on the condenser out front. The length looks right and the angle kind of seems logical.

    I didn't see anything in the manual I have (Haynes)...and online it only showed a pic for a rear a/c vehicle (which is just a different hi pressure hose with an extra fitting). Still didn't have dimples.

    I have the dryer in hand today....no hose or tube yet.

    That is where my orifice tube is located.
    Lower, angled neck coming out of condenser.

    Actually I think the orfice is a metering device that has been used to replace the TXV that was orignally used on AC systems, it is used to meter the refrigerant into the evaporater. Good luck with the system, be sure to pull a deep vacuum and check your systems oil.
