    piece of cake mate take off the 2 cooling hoses from the stat and remove the 2 fixing bolts and it should come straight off just make sure when you fit the new one you use a new gasket and make sure the gasket is in place because it is quite easy to nip the new gasket when fitting if your not careful then just bleed the cooling system job done

        at the front of the engine on the left hand side of the cylinder head you will see your radiator hose follow that to the cylinder head and thats where the thermostat is .
        the easiest way to bleed the cooling system is to put some coolant in the expansion bottle start the engine and squeeze the top and bottom hoses a few times and recheck the coolant level put the cap on and run the engine so the fan cuts in when the engine cools down recheck the level
