Hello,

The thermostat is located on the top of the engine just in front of the intake manifold.
To replace the thermostat, you will have to remove two screws that are on the housing. This will allow you to remove the housing and access the thermostat.

Keep in mind to work on the cooling system when the engine is cool.

Here is a helpful video of thermostat replacement:

I have attached diagrams for your reference.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
