drain the coolant by loosening the drainplug in the bottom of the radiator. follow the lower radiator hose to where it attaches to the engine. remvove the clamp from the hose. remove the 2 screws that hold the small black cover in place. the thermostat is under that cover. install a new stat with a new gasket with the vent hole (its a small hole in the stat with a little dumbell in it) facing up (12:00). it may be necessary to remove the alternator to do this on a rav, its pretty tight in there!

follow the top radiator hose to the engine and there will be two half inch bolts pull the housing off and that is your thermostat, replace in same position as the old one. p.s. is car overheating may not be thermostat, you can test thermostat in pan of boiling water and see if it opens or closes.

the thermostat is located behind the water pump. there are 2 8mm bolts holding it in. unscrew, pull old thermostat out, put new one in and put back together. Simple - 9 I would have given it a 10 but the bottom bolt can be a pin to get to.
