Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty
Folow the large hose from the top of the radiator to the engine block. There should be a housing held on with 2 bolts. The thermostat element is inside this.
Note which way around it is fitted, as the bulb part has to be on the engine side to work correctly.
Easy way is to drain 1/2 of coolant from the plug under the radiator into a clean bowl.
Undo top hose, Replace stat, do up hose again, then refill through the expansion bottle. If it won't take it all due to an airlock, run engine a short while, then try to refill again.
Often new stats come with a new gasket - use it with a very thin smear of sealant, and grease the bolt threads before replacing - don't overtighten - they're only small bolts.

Dont forget to by some primatech glue to but on the engine black and the housing unit before bolting back on. If you dont all your engine coolant will leak back out because it isnt sealed.
