Unbolt the housing pull up on the housing you may have to pry it up with a straight edge or something make sure you clean both surfaces (remove the old gasket) make sure you look at the posistion of the old thermostat before you remove it the new one has to go back the same way.

How do I locate my thermostat?

In most cases, not all, follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. The hose clamp on the end is usually clamped to the thermostat housing (sometimes there's a metal tube, and another rubber hose, then the housing). Drain the coolant through the petcock valve on the radiator,or place a large pan under the vehicle to catch what escapes. It's usually easier to remove the hose from the thermostat housing (Get a flashlight and look inside, but make sure the engine is cooled off). If you can see the thermostat, then remove the housing. (put the thermostat back in the way it came out. Pointy end towards the radiator.) Clean off the old gasket from both surfaces, install the new thermostat, apply the new gasket. Reverse the procedure and top off with coolant.

Search under "images" and type in "thermostat" if you're not sure what it looks like. You'll be looking for the end with the point.

How to change the thermostat

Hi, Follow the top rad hose and at the end of that is the thermostat. Undo the two bolts and there it is.
But first you will have to drain some fluid out to make it easier to access. Good luck.

Need to fix new thermostat

Your thermostat is located under a metal housing on the top of the engine. The upper radiator hose connects to this housing. To change the thermostat you basically need to drain the radiator after your engine is cold, disconnect the upper radiator hose from the engine, and remove the bolts from the small housing. replace the thermostat, and clean the surfaces on both sides and replace the gasket too. reinstall the housing, attach the hose, and refill the radiator. start the engine, warm it up and check for leaks, then re check the coolant level after the engine cools off again.

Cant find the thermostat on a 93 honda accord

the thermostat is located at the end of the bottom radiator hose where it connects to the engine. You need to disconnect the air filter housing tube and 3 hoses. One water and two vacuum hoses. Two horizontal bolts disconnect the housing that holds the thermostat. The factory thermostat is 172.4 degrees F. or 78 degrees C. During installation make sure air bleeder hole (very small, looks like a loose rivet)in the thermostat is up. It is relatively easy to do. Hope this info is helpful.
