Follow the lower rad hose from the rad to the engine, the thermostat is located under the thermostat housing on the engine end (2X10mm head bolts). Notes: 1) if these bolts have not moved in a while it is likely best to spray them with oil for a bit, they are steel bolts in an alumnium housing located in an area almost impossable to get a drill to, so be careful. 2) using an aftermarket thermostat can give "mixed" results, the best choice is a Subaru OEM thermostat and gasket. 3) use a bit of grease on the bolts when replacing them for "next time".
