You can find it by locating the big hose that goes into the top of the radiator. The thermostat is inside a housing on the engine side of the big hose. Take the hose loose. Take the 2 bolts out and the thermostat is inside this rounded housing. Make sure you point the spring on the new thermostat towards the engine or it won't work properly.
