On the last '98 A4 30v I had in, it was a 32mm nut, reverse thread. I've got
a slim wrench for it from Matador, it'd be #3312 from Zelenda in NY. As I
recall I had to pin lock the serp belt pulley before breaking it loose. I'm
sure there are dealer techs on the list that have done it more often then
