Part 1 - Drain Coolant & Achieve Access



To begin with you will need to drain your coolant, I didn't bother with this as I put a tray under the car to collect it once I remove the thermostat. To do this simply remove a coolant hose towards the bottom of the coolant system.

The Thermostat is located to the right hand side of the engine bay underneath the Air Inlet tubing.

To begin with Jack the car up to a height you feel comfortable working at. You then need to remove the battery. This is easily done by removing the 13mm Hex nut on the bracket on the left hand side of the battery and undoing the battery terminals. Make sure you have your Red key to hand just in-case although wasn't required for me

Next it's time to remove the Air Inlet host which is bolted to the engine with 2 x 10mm Hex Bolts, As well as the crankcase breather hose and the coolant hose. Your engine bay should now look something like this revealing the all important thermostat:-

There are 4 coolant hoses running to the thermostat as well as a coolant temperature sensor (Blue).
