It should be on the thermostat housing. Usually top of screw has a slit in it. Or rarely may have a nut shaped head. When loosening do not take bolt out all of the way.

NOTE:A 1985 BMW 318i has an in-line thermostat. It has 3 hose fittings and connects to the lower radiator hose, the water pump, and the top of the engine. There is no screw or other adjustment on the thermostat housing. Some auto parts stores have a standard thermostat listed instead, so maybe there is a different engine configuration, but the in-line thermostat seems most common.
