Can i get away with just doing the orifice tube itself?
I think its really hit or miss. We as an insurance company paid to replace a compressor after replacing some of the other components of the cooling/core support and the system had to be opened up to decharge and recharge the system.

The compressor took a dump and let go of metal shavings or something internal and ruined the whole system.

This was on a newer toyota camry (2012 I Think)
