The receiver/dryer is usually a round silver/aluminum-colored device near the passenger side of the bulkhead between engine and passenger compartments. If you follow the outlet of this, you will find the orifice at the bulkhead.

Are you sure about the info here? I don't see an Edge being produced until 2007

Oh, You're wondering how to charge the system, then. One will be between the compressor and receiver/dryer (high side) and one will be between the compressor and the condenser(low/suction side). They look like over-sized valve stems for tires.

Wrench, that would explain why I couldn't find it in Mitchell under '03:)

A Ford Edge is an SUV. You have a Ranger.
The orifice tube is in the evaporator inlet and you have an accumulator, not a dryer which is attached to the evaporator.
