SOURCE: replace rear brake light bulb 1998 lincoln continental

pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.

You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk

Location and installation of thermostat?

The termostat is easy to locate and replace on any car. What you need to do is look for the TOP radiator hose and follow it back to the engine block. Where it ends you will see this hose clamped to an inlet pip. This inlet pipe is bolted (two bolts) to your engine's intake manifold. Remove the two bolts that hold this inlet pipe in place and there you will find the thermostat. You can buy a repalcement thermostat at any auto parts store for about $5. To install the new thermostat, simply do the reverse procesure described above.

I can't find where my thermostat is located on my 1967 lincoln continental.It has a 462 engine.I;m trying to change it.

All you should have to do on the older cars is follow the upper hose from the radiator to the engine. The housing on the engine where the connects is where the thermostat is located.

How do i change the thermostat on a 98 lincon continental

4.6L Engines

  1. Drain the cooling system to a level below the thermostat.
CAUTION Never open, service, or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. In addition, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

  1. Disconnect the upper radiator hose at the thermostat housing.
  2. Remove the two thermostat-housing retaining bolts and remove the thermostat housing.
  3. Remove the thermostat and O-ring seal. Inspect the O-ring for damage and replace, as necessary.
To install:
  1. Make sure all mating surfaces are clean.
  2. Install the thermostat, O-ring, and thermostat housing. Make sure the thermostat is positioned as shown in the figure.
  3. Install and alternately tighten the thermostat housing retaining bolts to 15–22 ft. lbs. (20–30 Nm). Connect the upper radiator hose.
  4. Fill the cooling system
