I forwarded this to the 200q20v list...

I don't have 200 experience, but have done it within the tight confines of 
my 1990 Coupe Quattro's engine compartment.

No I did not have to remove the radiator - the trick was to remove the fan 
and shroud as one unit-

remove the bolts attaching the shroud to the radiator, then remove the 
radiator fan mounting bolts - this will allow you to move the fan forward, 
into the shroud so that it will clear the MC and the ABS lines.  The remove 
the shroud/fan as a unit from the car.  Once outside of the car, remove the 
fan/motor from the shroud and replace.

To quote Bentley, reinstallation is opposite of the removal

Good Luck!
