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.
