Question about Cars & Trucks
There is a hose that connects the top of the radiator to the engine. The piece that is connected to the engeine can be removed, usually with 2 bolts. The thermostat is under this piece. Even when the bolts are out, it will probably be hard to remove because it is usually sealed on. You'll have to clean up the surfaces and install a new gasket when you change the thermostat.

Find the hoses that leave your radiator.
Trace the top hose back to your engine.
Locate the thermostat housing attached at the end of that hose. Verify the location in your owner's manual, as some manufacturers house the thermostat at the bottom of the radiator rather than the top. This makes removal far more difficult.
