A/C condenser

I believe there are many ppl here who already did remove a/c system for track sake etc. Hence my question...

Myself, I got a/c condenser and coolant radiator holed while cruising on A14 near Cambridge by some metal object (bolt, nut?) flying from lorry in front of me.

How difficult is to remove a/c condenser itself and replace? I know I have to remove radiator first.
1. But, is condenser held by any bolts, or just slotted in position (pegs or pins)?
2. Will removing radiator give you enough space to access and remove a/c condenser? Or I need to remove front bumper as well?
3. Are two lines connecting to condenser secured by any sealing gasket, o-ring etc, or just self-sealing (undo nut/bolt, that's all)?

BTW, no gas in the system left, just green snots here and there, so no environmental hazard.

Radiator is easy but the air con condenser isn't to bad once rad is out but i think there's bolts going though the front which means the bumper has to come off. But it might be easier just to see what your doing.
The pipes will have o rings on them.
