On this application, it will be located in the liquid line (non-serviceable orifice). You will have to replace the liquid line to change the orifice tube. Here is a link for Black-Death. Be sure that you follow all steps to insure the new components that you are replacing.

Hope this helps and good luck!

96 to 99 had a fitting where you could access the O tube, as shown in the pic below. It's on the passenger side running along the frame. You might be lucky and have such a fitting. Not really sure on the 02... If the fitting is there, you have to peel away some of the foam to get at it..If not, it's as Jack says, and the line must be replaced..
