Drain plug is on the left side of car, if you are underneath. However, this is tricky, since it needs G12 coolant, and you need to make sure that the air is COMPLETELY removed from the system. Good luck!

SOURCE: Core Support and Radiator Replacement , Audi A4 Quatro 1.8

Very easy - the car is designed to have these parts as being removable for the timing belt service. Opening the car is called the "service position" and involves taking these parts nearly off the car. Use the link below (it's a link to a DIY procedure for doing the timing belt on the car) - it'll show you what to do in order to remove the front clip of the car and remove the core support and radiator.

If you mean the sump drain plug then you will first need to remove the plastic undertray from beneath the engine. you should then be able to see the plug to the rear of the sump.

Where is the thermostat on my 2002 audi a 4 located


Hello,

The thermostat of a 2002 audi a4 is located between the engine and the radiator. The thermostat is small and crucial. It is meant for the vehicles cooling system. It moderates the flow of coolant into the engine by releasing it when the engine need it the most. The thermostat is designed to open its valve once the temperature of the engine reaches about 200 degrees F. Its purpose is to keep the engine running at a consistent temperature, allowing your Audi A4 to operate at peak performance.

If You are planning on replacing the thermostat, here are the steps to follow to replace them, try to get these instruments (Car ramps, 4-by-4 inch wood block, Metric socket wrench set, Socket extension, Pliers, Drain pan, Empty plastic container, Black marker, Towel, Emery cloth, Gasket seal) then follow the steps below:
  1. Raise the front end of your Audi A4 by driving up on a set of car ramps and placing your vehicle in park.
  2. Place a 4-by-4 inch wood block behind one of the rear tires to keep the vehicle from rolling backward.
  3. Use a socket wrench to remove the pan that covers the bottom of the engine.
  4. Locate the red plastic cap that was behind the pan that you just removed. This red cap is your radiator drain plug. Remove the radiator cap from the top of the radiator and then place a drain pan under the red drain plug and turn it with a pair of pliers to allow the coolant to drain completely from the radiator. Once the coolant has completely drained, turn the drain plug to close it off. Be careful when using the pliers on the drain plug that you do not snap the plug off.
  5. Slide under the vehicle and locate the thermostat housing that is sitting just above the oil pan drain plug. Pour the drained coolant from the drain pan into an empty plastic container and label the container so that you do not reuse the expelled coolant. Place the empty drain pan under the thermostat housing before you attempt to remove the housing to allow the coolant from the engine to drain into it.
  6. Remove the 10 mm bolts that hold the thermostat housing on the engine block with a metric socket wrench. Do not lay directly underneath the thermostat housing as the coolant from the engine will begin to drain as soon as you loosen the bolts on the housing. Keep a towel or cloth with you to clean off any spilled coolant .
  7. Remove the thermostat housing from the engine and lift the old thermostat out of the housing. Use a piece of emery cloth to clean the face of the thermostat housing and the engine block where the housing is mounted from any remaining gasket material or debris.
  8. Spread a layer of gasket seal around the face of the thermostat housing and place the new thermostat on the housing, with the thermostat spring facing out from the housing. Position the housing back on the engine block and secure it to the block with the bolts.
  9. Replace the pan the sits across the bottom of the engine of your Audi A4 and then refill the radiator with coolant and put the radiator cap back on the radiator. Remove the wood block from the back tire of your vehicle. Turn the engine on and drive the Audi A4 off of the car ramps. Allow the engine to run at idle for a few minutes to verify that the thermostat is working properly and then shut the engine off.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Where is the oil drain plug on a 99 Audi A4 1.8L Turbo?


Hi,
The standard drain plug is on the rear of the sump on the bottom edge slightly right of centre the bolt is a 17mm hex socket type, you have to remove the under shield first to see it,It is possible someone has changed the original bolt for a bigger one as they are prone for tearing the threads out of the aluminium sump ,
