Long story short, my car rolled into a tractor.

The stupid question: this is the intercooler, or the radiator? I thought it was the intercooler, but the shop (not my usual shop, and NOT Volvo specialists) says radiator.

It's the "thing" in front. Condenser, then? A beer for you!

I'm leaking (spewing) coolant. So i need to replace both my condenser and radiator, correct?

yeah check amazon and rockauto, they AC condenser and rad aren't too expensive. Also, when I replaced mine it was easiest to remove them out through the bottom, although we ended up installing the new one from the top.

Is there a good writeup anywhere for that process?

Also, in addition to new coolant, you will also need a very small amount of transmission fluid to top off the transmission. A small portion of the radiator serves the transmission so you'll lose a little bit of fluid when you disconnect the rad.

You should see if the AC is still holding pressure before you just go undoing it. If it has Freon still in it, you can save some money if you can have a shop evacuate the AC before you work on it.
