check the link below should be fairly easy to do usually located at the housing where the upper radiater hose connects to the engine.

Agree with BeJay. What is the actual problem?

two 10mm bolts

take them out and there's your stat, no gasket either, the new thermostat should come with a new o-ring, also there's a notch in the housing so the thermostat will be pointed up correctly (for the air bleed hole)

usually these thermostats break into pieces before they stick, make sure you take all the old pieces out of the head or they might stick in the new one.

reassemble, top off the coolant, and let it idle until the fan cycles on and off, the let it cool and top off the coolant once more.
