It sounds like you have the right location, but getting to it is gonna be the issue. Typically yes the thermostat is located under the top radiator hose that runs from the radiator to the block. Start by draining some/most of the antifreeze that way you don't have a big mess then remove the hose from the block and then the thermostat housing so that you can replace it. Good luck making room to get in there. Hope this helps

SOURCE: yellow warning light coming on that looks like exhaust pipe

You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why that light is on. If you have an autozone near you,go there they will hook one up for you. Takes about 30 to 40 seconds. If not call around.

SOURCE: Cant fold down the rear seat in our 1997 Chevy Tahoe

in the middle of the seat cushions in the back of the seat there is a little loop, pull that loop forward and that will have the seat's bottom pulled down to the floor agains the back of the front seats. Next simply apply a lil muscle to the back of the back seats and the seats should fold down nicely into the open space. Be sure to remove the headrests so the seat will fold all the way down. post any issues u may have.

SOURCE: coolant leaking on a4 2002 1.8t

If the coolant is droping on top of the trans, then it is the coolant flange located at the back of the engine then it is the coolant flange,like the person above mentioned. I had happen to my A4. The part is like $20 i believe if you get it yourself, plus new coolant, VW kind. Get the flange and a new o-ring do not try to re-use. There is a DIY for it if you google it : I chose to take it to a shop it was 2-3 hours labor. Just make sure they know what they are doing. The spot is a pain in the ***, and if you have big hands don't even think about it. Well worth the pay to a shop!

I would have though your garage would have either cleaned or replaced the aur mass sensor.
You can find this four/five pin plug somewhere between the air filter and the throttle housing or google its location.
These often dont show up well on diagnostic computers.
You can run engine with plug disconnected to see if it runs better or not. If it does then buy and fit a new sensor.
All that really controls your fueling is coolant sensor and air sensors....these often fail the most.
Good luck

Not a Peugeot expert, but there should be a safety switch to keep you from cranking the engine in gear.

As it was rusty i would assume the poor thermostat has been abused, it's in the waterpump and a few minutes to change.They are £6+ from main dealer.If in the open position(wax has no life left to open or close and spring keeps it open) this is why all seems fine but no heat.With the thermostat in the open position(faulty) your car will use more fuel and wear and tear on the engine particulary at cold starts will increase so change it sooner rather than later.

yes I can help! it seem that you have some air in your cooling system. first you will have to drain the system by removing the lower radiator hose. clamp the radiator hose in place refail the system with 70% cooleant and 20% water. remove the radiator cap and start the engine allow air bubble to escape from the system while the engine is on but do not allow the coolean to over flow from the radiator. replace the radiator cap as soon as you see steam coming from the cooleant. another way is-- you can keep the radiator cap on and loose the bleeder valve that is located on the thermostat side and the other at the back of the engine near the fire wall or crow. Also check the thermostat. make sure it is in the right position and the little opening on the thermostat is not clog and the spring is pointing toward the engine. also make sure that thermostat is right one for your car.
