Need help replacing radiator/condenser

Long story short: I hit a downed fire hydrant at about 3mph.

Thought the radiator busted since it was raining what looked like coolant underneath. After ordering a radiator and tearing down the WK2, I now realize I think it is actually the condenser that is busted and leaking.

I'm about to order a condenser. I know nothing about AC, but my research (no info on the WK2 specifically that I could find unfortunately) says a dryer should be replaced when the condenser is. Where exactly is the dryer on the WK2? Is it a seperate part or is it built into something else? Also, is there anything else I should know other than lefty-loosey righty-tighty about installing a condenser? I plan to have the system professionally vacuum/filled after I'm done swapping parts.

Thanks for any tips. This is a stressful repair.
