haven't looked at mine. but on most vehicles it is as follows: the top radiator hose comes from the radiator to the engine and connects to a metal housing with usually two bolts. when you remove the two bolts and lift it up, the thermostat will be visible. there might be a gasket there that you have to replace, when you pull the housing off if there is a gasket sometimes it will ruin the gasket.yep, just ran to the garage, it's under that black metal piece that the upper hose runs to on the engine, two bolts
