First question back is "Why do you need to?" Normally you would just remove the nuts to undo the neck that the thermostat sits behind. If you really do need to remove the studs ... First, put some penetrating oil on the studs. Give it some time to soak in and do it's stuff. Next, I would lock onto the stud with a pair of vice grips. They are screwed in, and should screw out. DO NOT TWIST THE STUD - ROTATE IT ONLY. If you twist you are in danger of breaking it off. If you do that you get to drill it and then use an extractor (also called an "easy out" - nice name, but not always easy). Of course, you can take it in to a machine shop and let them do it! If you want to save the studs screw 2 nuts together at the top of the stud and tighten them together, then put your wrench on the bottom nut and the stud should come out. If the nuts move tighten them until the flat sides are matched and use a deep socket over both nuts to remove it.

Remove the upper radiator hose from the housing. Then remove both bolts, and pull out the housing, your thermostat will be in there. It sits freely in the housing, so it might fall out.
