A NEW THERMOSTAT FOR THE CAR 1ST
Follow the top hose from the top left of the radiator back to the engine block, where the hose ends attached to a metalic dome (thermostsat housing), held inplace by a pair of 3/8 or 10mm bolts. Remove bolts and take em out of the holes (stops them flying off into the engine in a place where you cant get them back). Lift off the thermostat housing and remove old thermostat after checking which way it sits in place.
Use a clean rag to fill hole while you clean away any residual gasket debris. Fit new thermostat, Use gasket seal on the new supplied gasket replace housing.. and bolt down tight.. refill system with recommended antifreeze and run the engine and check for leaks and top up levels as required..
