My mother has a 2002 Passat with the 1.8 engine. The alternator has gone out and needs replacing. I removed the top bolt and got the bottom bolt loose and that is where I ran into my problem. The bottom bolt doesn't have enough room to come out!! Are there any secrets to removing the bottom bolt of the alternator? Will I just have to remove the front end to get to it? The bolt is hitting the back side of the fan. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

There is an allen bolt that holds the fan pully on the mount. You can undo that bolt and take the fan/with hub and pulley out of the car. That should give you all the clearance you need.
I will never lie, but sometimes the truth changes.
