Answer

Just got done doing the same thing on my 1995 SE. Easy as pie, helped to remove the battery and followed hose as above. The thermostat is housed in a three way unit. Just unscrew the two nuts, and voila! Lost about a pint of fluid, mostly spilled out when I took out the thermostat, so if you have it in hand, you can pop it in rather quickly and replace rubber gasket with out having to buy a new one.

"reokace" is not a known word to me. Locate? Replace? Reposition? So far, this is meaningless.
