I found this .... Though not the best design - it is doable with simple tools. Note: my car is: Audi 2003 / 2004 Quattro A4 3.01. Remove weather stripping (3/4" thick strip across top of sheet metal between engine and fire wall (just give it a tug to get it going) 2. Remove plastic shield covering battery (remove the small one above the battery to give youself some leverage point). To remove the large plastic piece just pull up on the front edge of it first (along the entire edge) - there will be a metal clip or two unless they fell off. Then pull it out of the recessed edge (other side) - it comes out as one piece. Note where the metal clips were! :)
3. Lay cloth on side of car. :)
4. If you have time run to Sears (or local tool shop) and buy metric allen heads for your nut-driver or socket set nut-driver. This will save you a headache....
5. Remove the positive and negative leads (I like to wrap the + cable in cloth so it doesn't touch anything....
6. My radio etc. were all fine. Alarm was fine so no need to do the battery trick... 7. If you don't have a nut-driver/allen set (like me since it was Sunday night) just use a #6 allen wrench with a ball tip (not necessary but helps) 8. The screw that holds the battery wedge in place is in a terrible spot - the front center of the battery. If they had only made a cut-out in the sheet metal this would be simple. But....they didnt' So use your allen wrench along with some pliers to un-do the cap-head screw. Don't worry, it is locked into the plastic piece so it won't fall into the bottom of the engine compartment. 9. Slide the battery screw over out of the way 10. Remove the breather tube on the + side of the battery 11. Tilt the battery backwards, slide it out - Again, Audi, just another 1/4" here would have been nice!!! you may have to cut the zip-tie on the + cable cover to get the battery out. I did. 12. put new battery in 13. Replace all the gear in reverse order.

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...
its simple, you will not have any trouble. after you loosen the bolts for the water pump pulley, take the belt off, then take pulley off,take water pump off... 5 bolts. I would buy factory JAG parts, the book says to replace the bolts, torque to 8nm + 90 degrees
There's 2 bolts at the top f the unit which u
need to take right out and 2 bolts at the back of the unit which
are on a slide so only have to be loosened to slide the headlight out... then twist and pull the socket out of the assembly and change bulb.. reverse to put back on
disconnect negative battery terminal, raise vehicle,remove splash sheild, if equipped. take wires off of solenoid on starter, remove starter mounting bolts, remember not to mix up wires!! --to install--put starter back in vehicle put in bolts,hook up wires, then replace cable back on battery.
