hello im josh i will assist you what you want to do is your top radiator hose trace it to the motor where it ends it will connect to the thermostat housing with a radiator clamp remove the radiator hose make sure the vehicle has been off for a while so youdont get burned
1.remove radiator hose from thermostat housing just loosen the hose clamp and pull hose off.
2.remove the two bolts that hold down the thermostat housing and pull the housing off
3.under the thermostat housing you will see the thermostat just pull it out by hand and make sure the old themostat gasket is removed
4.install new gasket it just lays down and then install the thermostat make sure it sits in the same way the old themrostat did
5.reinstall housing tighten bolts down
6.reclamp hose back on housing and you are good to go
