Question about Audi A4
It depends on what you have for tools. It's held on by a large left-hand-thread nut that any properly-sized wrench will loosen, but there may not be clearance to remove it. If there is not, you'll need to put the car into what's called "service position". Go to www.audiworld.com and click on Resources, then Tech, and go to the engine tech section. Look up the procedure for changing the timing belt and it'll walk you through the setup for service position (basically opening the front of the car like a door - sounds complex but it's designed to be opened and is easy to do). Once the front is opened up, you can easily change the fan out.
If you do have to open the front of the car, you may want to change out a few other parts. I don't know which engine you have (1.8T or V6) but you would benefit from changing the snub mount ($7 from www.germanautoparts.com) as it does wear out, as well as the thermostat (just because it's easier to access like this). Inspect the serpentine belt for stress cracking on the ribs (it's common) and replace if necessary.
