Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
I remember removing the water hose and bending it back and tying it, then two or so spark plug wires had to be removed to give more access.
with a couple of different box wrenches with differing offsets, and small drive socket wrench with universal fitting on the socket you should get enough leverage to loosen the bolts and back out the bolts. try backing the bolts out with your fingers from turn to turn.
good tools, for example a six point socket and perhaps a swivel head socket wrench are worth the price. you don't want to damage the bolts or beak them as this is a difficult repair to make. also, the thermostat housing is not robustly made and when i reatached mine a little piece of old gasket material was enough to force a crack in the housing as i tightened it down. i had to go to a junk yard for another.
you might try getting advice on how to gently loosen the bolts if they seem stuck.
all considered, this is not a difficult repair.
