It sounds like your A4 is similar to the B4 90's. This is a filter
orientation picture that has helped people out in the past!! Not sure if
your car is the same but just in case.....

Hoo-ee, this is a b*tch to get at. On a q, it's located on the r.f. corner
the gas tank, and it looks like you gotta drop the tank to get at the filter
body clamp. (Maybe that's why Bentley doesn't mention a change
Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone's actually done this and can tell me
what size hex key the clamp takes.
And, what's at the top (outlet) end of the filter-- is there a hose or a
pipe? If a hose, then once the clamp is undone, you could drop the filter
get at the outlet fitting... and it'd be worth while to invent a trick tool
for undoing the filter body clamp without dropping the tank!
thx for any BTDT
