The thermostat is behind the lower part of the radiator on the passenger side. It's easier to jack up the car and remove the right front wheel. The job would be easy except there's a bracket attached to a frame cross member that goes to the housing, so you also have to remove that to get the thermostat out. I used a crowfoot wrench to get one of those bracket bolts out.


The taper side side of the thermostat goes toward the radiator. To get the thermostat centered start the bolts to the housing. Taking the short piece of hose off the housing that goes to the radiator helps. Then reattach the bracket to the frame later after you check for leaks.
