    there should be a splash sheild under the vehicle, under the rad., behind the front bumper cover... it may be attached there... and probably several fastener at the back attached to the lower crossmember. sometimes even attached to the wheel opening cover in front of thw wheels.... you should see a drain valve in the radiator once you gain access.. if no, remove the lower hose... but it'll be a gusher

Overheating boiling over, cant find therm stat location on discovery model

Find where the Upper Radiator hose connects to the block. That is usually where you find the Thermastat. 2 to 3 bolts hold the cover in place. You need new Therma stat, a new seal, and the tools to remove and install the part.
