2002 Audi A4 Avant, Alternator pulley wheel sheared off.

I have the fron of the car stripped to gain access however, how do i remove the large fan which is blocking the bottom bolt of the alternator housing? I can get a T50 torx into the rear of the fan. Do i need to clamp the fan pulley wheel?

This is the one on the driver's side right? To remove them on the V6 models (when I've worked on them it's been the previous generation V6 models) I remove the large nut on the fan shaft - it's a reverse-thread so you have to turn it to the right to loosen it. Try that out and see if the fan comes off. I do it that way and haven't had any trouble with them yet.

How do i take the pressure off my fan belt on my 1.9tdi 2002 a4. is there a bolt on the tensioner than will release the pressure when turned??

Yes, there is a 19 mm hexagonal cap bolt on the tensioner. See the yellow arrow in the picture below:
Put a 19 mm spanner on the bolt and turn it in counterclockwise direction until the fan belt will be released. Then remove old fan belt and install a new one. See the serpentine belt routing diagram for a 2002 Audi A4 1.9 TDI:
CS = Crankshaft
F = Fan pulley
Gen = Alternator
T = Tensioner
AC = Air Conditioning
PAS = Power Assisted Steering

Hi need to change rear brake light on my 2002 audi a4

After removing screw,you need to prise unit off
Start from inside of unit untill it moves,then push to out side of car to release
The unit will be tight,as it probably has not been removed
The ideal tool to remove is a plastic trim removal tool
A screwdriver will do the job
Refitting,locate slots on out side of car,and push firmly in,replace screw

Where is the thermostat on my audi a4 2.8 1997 audi

Audt uses a reverse flow cooling, so the rad, hose that attachs to the motor behind the alternator is where the stat is found. When you remove it just take your time it is a real pain with large hands.

Fan on Audi A4 Avant not working

'Fraid I can only vouch for the A6, but the A4 is very similar and has many common components. On the A6 it's reasonably easy, as the access is from behind the glovebox on the inside and under a filter next to the battery on the outside. Audi's are notorious for having burnt-out/seized heating blower fans, so your diagnose is probably correct... :(
