Default radiator exchange - help needed

Hi everyone,
two days ago I noticed problem with A/C, it stopped cooling air, and after stop driving, from front of car (behind grill) I was able to hear hiss.
On beginning I thought that is just small leaking from A/C tubing, but unfortunately yesterday during driving I saw blinking lights on dash board (traction control, check engine etc.). Also I saw max temperature of engine. So I don't know if it's only one connected problem, or two.

I do not have an idea, if A/C and engine cooling is one the same radiator, or not, but for sure there are two types of tubes (aluminum and rubber)
Right now I have small problem how to remove main radiator, outside from the car.
Very close to main radiator is another smaller radiator, so that's I'm confused, how can i remove main radiator?
Anyone can help me with this?
Also If I good checking, to my Tribeca 3.6 should be radiator 45111XA00A. Am I right?

First of all, you have to locate where is the coolant leak. It can be radiator, hose or gasket.
On front of your engine you have A/C condenser and separately cooling radiator with big rubber hoses for cooling your engine and two smaller hoses for cooling your transmission.

Thank you lutek34,
Yesterday I dismounted whole radiator from engine space. My radiator was in bad condition, allready ordered new spare part.
On the begining I wasn't sure if radiator is connected with oil chiller, as one part, to the moment of dismounting.
