Still no illustration but it does have a "See if this part fits your car" function and it does fit my car so I guess this HAS to be part...

Thanks fellas!

Once you enter your van info, find the parts section. It will have a listing of part numbers. Click on the top of the screen where it says more info. A PDF of the parts will open.

Enjoy, Jim

UPDATE:

I got the part replaced and evac/recharged the system and everything is working now.'

Has anyone else experienced anything like this where the dipstick tube heated up causing the AC hose to melt and leak refrigerant?

Seems like a design error because once I installed the new hose, it was still touching the dipstick tube so I had to get some of those plastic crinkle-style wire protectors and put it around the dipstick tube where the AC hose made contact.

That sounds unusual. Maybe the tube got bumped and it's contacting your exhaust?

So it's not normal for the AC hose to be touching the dipstick tube when you remove the doghouse?
