Question about 1992 Audi 80
Broke down, towed home. Both initial Breakdown recovery guy and tow guy claim thermostat is jammed shut and needs replacing. Can get thermostat but cannot for the life of me find it in cooling system. Need location of thermostat on 1995 Audi 80 E Auto 2.6 V6 to remove and replace myself or make decision on taking to garage if its too complicated?
On Audi and most VAG engines, it is actually at the end of the bottom hose.In the case of the 90's V6's (all of them have the same block) it is located just to the right (facing forward, not facing the engine) of the centre of the 'V' right next to the water pump. It is at the end of quite a long alloy housing that joins onto the bottom hose. Both it and the water pump are hidden behind the timing covers and really necessitate removing the timing belt to access - in the case of the water pump this is absolutely necessary as the pump is driven by the timing belt, in the case of the thermostat you might get away without removing the timing belt, but it'll be fiddly.

Probably right between the two banks of cylinders, at the front of the V behind the top of the timing case. Not worked on this engine in particular but thats where they usually are on V6's.
