The thermostat is located on the pass side of the engine.  There are timing belt covers that need to be removed.  In order to remove the thermostat normally the front bumper has to come off and the car has to be put into what audi calls service mode. This allows room to get to the timing belt components.

Agreed with auditech13 - you may as well do your timing belt at the same time, along with the related components, to save yourself from duplicating the labor charges later on when the t-belt is due. If you're in the NE US, I can do it for you for $600 including parts and labor (dealer gets $1100 or so typically). If you're in range of upstate NY and are interested, leave an email address here as a reply and we can talk it over.

I have the front nose off my A4 Audi Quattro-1998-2.8L to do the timimg belt and I cannot locate the thermostat. Do you know where it is?


Hi mate, the thermostat probably like in my Audi 80 is situated inside of the water pump, just remove one of the hoses and it will be seen from there.
I wish you can resolve your problem, good luck.

Where is the thermostat on an Audi A4 diesel, 1998


Heed of antifreeze solution temperature!!!
You must check the thermostat operating. The thermostat location is on back of alternator at the bottom side of the bracket. IMPORTANT: It is NOT necessary to replace the alternator if you want to change the thermostat !!!
Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.
