Replace it by removing the old thermostat, carefully cleaning off the old gasket. Install the new gasket & thermostat, spring toward engine block, and tighten to factory specs, and no more.
To replace the thermostat, follow the return hose from the radiator to the black plastic encasement which witholds the thermostat. It is pretty tricky to unbolt it from the engine (there are two bolts, one visible and the other is underneath the plastic piece) but that is where the thermostat is located. Good luck
