coolant leak

So my coolant is leaking ofr the past month. Took it to the shop and the guy says i have to replace the radiator. So he orders a radiator, but its not the right one. Apparently the altima hybrid's radiator is a combination of the engine and ac condenser/radiator. IS that true?
Bcoz i know in regular cars there are two diff parts. ONe for the engine and one for the ac.

From the diagrams I looked at, there appears to be two kinds of radiator:

21410-L32002 (This is probably the radiator you want for the 08 QR25)

21460-L32002

Could hold some truth to it, courtesypart.com does not say HYBRID though. I've never seen a 2 in 1 radiator though....

yea, wouldn't make much sense as you wouldn't want the heat of the radiator so close to the condenser. after all, it's job is to remove heat from the refrigerant.

but with modern cars, nothing surprises me.

So i ordered the part from dealerdirectparts and it was the oem part, took the old one out and new one back in, and no coolant leak. But the price was a bitch.
regular radiator for a non hybrid: $100-150, and for me fckin $350 fml

Well then it's all good, you've already saved up for that extra cost on fuel with your hybrid

p.s. - $150ish for factory radioator?? I thought they cost more then that.... a LOT more actually.
