Hi, no you don't have to remove the fan. Either access the lower bolt from underneath or carefully lever the alternator away from the block (e.g pivot it on the lower bolt) untill you have adequate clearance.
Hope that helps M...

How do you replace an alternator


FIRST TURN OFF RADIO THEN REMOVE THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE. FOR THE A - 4 1.8 L ENGINE YOU HAVE TO REMOVE AIR INTAKE DUCT FROM THE INTERCOOLER TO THE THROTTLE BODY AND REMOVE THE ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT.THEN YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE ENGINE COOLING FAN. THEN DISCONNECT THE WIRE TERMINALS FROM THE ALTERNATOR THEN REMOVE ALTERNATOR MOUNTING BOLTS AND REMOVE ALTERNATOR. FOR A - 4 2.8L ENGINES YOU HAVE POSITION FRONT END RADIATOR SUPPORT IN THE SERVICE POSITION. YOU NEED A REPAIR MANUAL TO SEE HOW TO REMOVE FRONT END AND RADIATOR SUPPORT IF YOU DO HAVE THE A - 4 2.8L ENGINES.

1997 Audi a4. Replacing thermostat. Can't get the housing off due to Cam belt in the way. How do I remove the belt? It's not the belt that runs off the alternator. It's a wider belt. Not...


If you index the engine properly (put cylinder 3 at top dead center, verified by alignment of timing marks on cam sprockets and crank pulley) you can remove the belt safely - the cams won't spin. But to get the housing off, you can slide the belt forward on the cam sprocket without removing it. Do it carefully - I've slid them halfway off and had a friend hold it while I tapped the channeling plate downward and off to replace the thermostat. Then slide it back in place once the new thermostat is in and the plate is resecured in place.

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:
tdisline_471.jpg
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:
tdisline_472.jpg
CS = Crankshaft
F = Fan pulley
Gen = Alternator
T = Tensioner
AC = Air Conditioning
PAS = Power Assisted Steering

2002 Audi A4 Avant, Alternator pulley wheel sheared off.


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.
