You need to pull the upper radiator hose from the engine (not from the radiator). The little round bugger w/ a spring on it in the hole from the radiator connection should be your thermostat. Pull it, drop in a new one, and then re-attacth the hose to your engine. You may have to pull the plastic "3800" molding off your motor to expose where the hose connects to the motor. Just a warning, the hose is a bit stubborn about getting back on...
To replace the thermostat on a 1988 535i, first locate the top radiator hose and remove the end connected to the motor. Take out the old thermostat and use gasket cleaner to remove the old gasket. Then replace the gasket and thermostat exactly as it was when it came out. Tighten up the radiator hose over the thermostat.

The thermostat is on the top of the motor where the top radiator hose attaches to it. The housing for it should be held on with two bolts. Remove the bolts and lift up the cover. There's the thermostat.
