The best way to replace thermostat housing on vw golf 2000

Pull apart the hose and housing. Put the housing on, and tighten down. Then reinstall and tighten the hose onto the housing. The housing should be free of all encumbrances when putting it on, so you get a good leak-free seal between the housing and the engine block.

Thermostat for VW golf 1996 The temp gauge raised to almost 220 but water temp light did not flush at all. Is it possible that the car has no thermostat?

Usually if a vehicle has NO thermostat the engine runs too cold for to long. So I suspect your VW has a thermostat. Suggest you check to make sure you have ample antifreeze, and that the fan is working properly. If those two things are O.K. then a blocked radiator or water pump issue will need to be checked out. With a 50/50 mix of antifreeze 220 degrees will not harm your engine. Good Luck.

I have to take off the thermostat on my vw 2000 golf.

can say the 2003 APK 2.0L engines thermostat is located almost vertically behind the alternator, for the job you'll need sockets 10mm and the elbow joint extension for the lower bolt on the thermostat housing. the jobs a little fiddly but made easy with the elbow joint.
care is to be taken when retentioning the plastic thermo housing as it easly breaks and a replacement isnt cheap So just use common sense when re-tightening
others report using the TDI thermostat as its cheaper

Yes. If the Service Engine Light comes on it can be a majority of trouble codes that dont even have to do with the engine at all. That could easily be anything. If the thermostat is faulty/old it could easily cause overheating. So could using the wrong coolant, or if the coolant is leaking excessively from places. Make sure you check under the car after is been parked for 1 hr + to see if its leaking. hope this helps!
