A/C drier/filter/compressor replacement

I have a 2004 Sienna AWD Limited. The bearing in the A/C compressor has gone bad so it's time to replace the compressor. When I purchased the compressor it was recommended to me to replace the drier/filter at the same time. The problem is, I can't figure out where it's located. I think it's located behind the bumper cover somewhere but I can't see anything that looks like a filter compartment through the grill. My radiator also needs to be replaced because it's leaking. I believe the radiator replacement requires the removal of the front bumper cover also. I can do both repairs at the same time if they both require the bumper cover to be removed. Can anyone tell me the procedure for either one of these repairs?

Thanks

Looks like you have to take out radiator etc to get to the compressor (see my post re radiator removal) , once you do all the radiator removals the A/C stuff should be obvious, the dryer asm appears to be mounted inside a tube attached to the side of the A/C radiator.
This job doesn't look simple, good luck and let us know how it goes! Andy
