I used a combination of open and closed-face wrenches as well as a ratchet wrench to get the three stud bolts out. My 1995 Ford Explorer required a 10mm (metric) size socket. Although each bolt was the same size, the different tools were needed in order to get into the small space to get them out and back in place.

With great difficulty. If you have nimble fingers and a good set of tools, you may be able to remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat housing without removing the exhaust pipe.

This is not an easy one to do. If you have nibble fingers, patients and the right tools you can do it. Removing the air filter box off the throttle body and out of the engine compartment will give you a little needed elbow room. Drain down the radiator and remove upper radiator hose from thermostat housing. Remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat housing to the engine. One of the two bolts will be a challenge to get to but it can be done. With bolts removed you can wiggle out the thermostat housing to expose the thermostat. Install in reverse order.

IF YOU FOLLOW THE LOWER RADIATOR HOSE TO THE ENGINE,YOU WILL LOCATE THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING.THERE ARE TWO BOLTS THAT HOLD THE HOUSING ON. THE THERMOSTAT SETS INSIDE THE HOUSING.

Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. Where it goes into the engine, there will be 2 bolts. These bolts are on the thermostat housing. 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. (You may have to remove 2 nuts that hold the dipstick on to get to the bolts. The nuts are right on the bolts themselves)
