Drain engine coolant so its level is below thermostat.
2.
Disconnect the radiator lower hose (A).

3.
Remove water inlet fitting (C), gasket (B) and thermostat (A).

Tightening torque :
7.8 ~ 11.8N.m (0.8 ~ 1.2kgf.m, 5.8 ~ 8.7lb-ft)

4.
Installation is reverse order of removal.
   
Install the thermostat with the jiggle valve upward.
When assembling the thermostat, place the thermostat on the housing with a protrusion of thermostat matching with a groove of the housing and install the gasket and inlet fitting. Be careful the thermostat doesnt get out of the groove on the housing.

Immerse thermostat in water heated to over 95C (203F), then heat for at least 3 minutes to check valve lift.

   
Do not use water below 95C (203F).
Do not directly heat unit as this will damage thermostat.
