Where can i find the thermostat on 1997 volkwagen jetta

Hello. I don't have your type of car; however, I can help you with youyr question because all thermostats are located in basically the same location. What you need to do is look for the upper radiator hose and follw that hose back to the engine block. Where the hose ends is the egine block, thermostat inlet pipe. The thermostat is located inside of this inlet pipe. There should be two bolts on this inlet pipe. Remove these two bolts and it should be there. Replace the thermostat and reinstall the inlet pipe. It is avery easy fix.

The thermostat is located at the engine end of the lower radiator hose (passenger side). If the car has power-steering the power steering pump and mounting bracket have to be removed to get to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is at the end of the bottom hose, in the water pump housing ..not the top
