Fallow the "UPPER" Radiator Hose from the Radiator to the Engine Cylinder Head, The Thermostat Housing is the Unit that the UPPER Radiator Hose Connects to. Theres is 1 BOLT (TOP) & 1 NUT (BOTTOM) that you Remove to Gain Access to the Thermostat itself. Hoping this Helps you out There . Have A Great Day.
