U unbolt the Housing where the upper Radiator hose Mountes 2 the engine.MAKE SURE U get the CORRECT Degree thermostat 4 that model.Clean the gasket surfaces (if a O-Ring isn't used) get a NEW gasket & make SURE U PUT the NEW Thermostat in the CORRECT way-IF U don't U WILL FRY the ENGINE bcause of a REVERSED thermostat.

It is at the engine end of the upper rad hose. Remove the housing and there it is. When replacing it make sure the spring goes toward the engine/
