Follow the upper radiator hose back to the engine block. There will be a cover plate with bolts holding it to a housing. This housing contains the thermostate. It has to be taken apart with the 2 possibly 3 bolts and a gasket. A LOT of fluid will pour out when you break the seal and open it. It maybe very difficult to get out without special tools to get to the bolts. You will then need to reseal it with rtv or supplied gaskets. I prefer ultra copper rtv.

The thermostat on a 96 Nissan Altima is located on top of the engine at the upper radiator hose. It is contained under the thermostat housing which holds it in place.

The 2003 Nissan thermostat is located inside of the thermostat housing. You can follow the bottom radiator hose directly to the thermostat housing.

On a 1997 Nissan Altima the water pump should be mounted on the front of the engine. It is right at the thermostat housing.
