HOW2->remove orifice tube from aluminum line of '90 Turbo 200 ?

In the process of replacing the a/c compressor, I'm stumped at removing the orifice tube.
In fact I broke it off inside the aluminum line, attempting to extract it.
Help appreciated, Courtney

Courtney, You might try getting a long wood screw and screwing it into the remainder of the orifice tube body, and then pulling on that to extract it. If you're a bit leery of that, try www.acsource.com or other ac supply companies - I'm sure I saw an extractor there. Make sure you flush the lines really well to remove the debris from the extraction. Cheers!
