Default Starter motor help need ASAP

Hello all I've recently got the following a6 allroad 2.5 tdi on a 2001 ...

Now today I've taken the front end off

Alternator is out and I've taken one bolt out the starter motor.... However my problem is the 2nd bolt ...
Has I'm looking at it all I can see is the bolt thread... I've got under the car and can't seem to find a way to get into get the second bolt out....

I really don't want to make more work for self ... How can I get the bolt out from underneath or anyway tbh starter got to come out one way or another..

Thanks very much

Danny

Have never done this job myself. But here's Bentley's procedure on a 2.7T US model...no TDi Allroads over here.

Move the lock carrier to the service position end remove the Mechanical fan With two 32 mm wrench, Covers,Alternator Belt and the Alternator, Then you can dismantle the second bolt. (Quoted from ELSA WIN).

The first bolt: You need to disassemble the Leave rear noise insulation (Underside of the vehicle), Then you see it

The starter has a through hole for the bolt with the nut on it and a threaded hole for the bolt with the threads, both of which you see from the front. Both get to the starter through the transmission flange. The heads of both bolts are reached from underneath by feeling up along the bell housing. On the AR, you need to have the belly shields removed.

The upper bolt is accessed from the transmission side. Remove the right front tire/wheel assembly. Go in through the wheel well opening forward of the axle shaft. Access to the bolt head is very difficult. Sockets didn't work for me. I had to use short wrenches tandemed up to get enough leverage.

All of this is assuming the TDI bellhousing is the same as the 2.7T

A high level of mechanical apptitude and a tool set built up over30yrs.

Seriously, you may have to cut/bend/weld/modify standard wrenches to remove this one bolt. The Bentley does nottell you about the patience and ingenuity needed to work on our Audi's. There is a reason why these cost so much when repairs are needed.

Thanks for the advice but I managed to do it with a 16mm and ratchet ?
No need for making tools .....

First bolt access from front of car ...

Second bolt drivers wheel and arch off .. Straight forward access ...

Thanks
