This is not an easy one to do. If you have nibble fingers, patients and the right tools you can do it. Removing the air filter box off the throttle body and out of the engine compartment will give you a little needed elbow room. Drain down the radiator and remove upper radiator hose from thermostat housing. Remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat housing to the engine. One of the two bolts will be a challenge to get to but it can be done. With bolts removed you can wiggle out the thermostat housing to expose the thermostat. Install in reverse order.
