Default Air Con orifice tube... where is it exactly...?

And can I get it out to clean it?

I know OT's are usually in the pipes and sealed with O rongs. Often you can pull them out with long nosed pliers and clean them / check them...

In the Haynes manual - which doesn't actually cover my CRD, but, whatever - it states that the orifice tube is an integral part of the liquid line, and (typical modern haynes) you have to replace the whole line if you want to renew the OT.

Just wondering if this is correct, or can you pull out the OT like you can on other cars, and if so - where it it exactly in the liquid line? Up the top, towards the receiver drier, or down the bottom near the radiator?
