    Hey I'm having a very similar problem, how did it go? Was the stat easy to get off, did u have to drop the coolant first? Did u re seal it when u put it back, gasket, instant gasget?

    Right u gotta take the panel off the side and the bottom panel then take the expansion bottle off but u can leave that full and it just hangs down clear of where you need to work then u can see the input and output hose to the thermostat it's a plastic cylinder shape with solid jubilee clips so if ur going to do this your going to need new clips to put it back on as u strip it off u drop quite alot of coolant so try and catch it to reuse it and thst way you can see the quality of the liquid. But I stripped my stat out and it's kinda a sealed unit I tryed it in boiling water and a few other tricks but it's very hard to tell If it's working or not!!? I refited, refiled, bled the best I can and it still overheats! ... Going to keep trying
