    Coolant loss changing Thermostat?????

    I have concluded its my Thermostat that's tired after a few days and using A/c No.49. Digital display and Temp gauge are there or there abouts so sender must be OK. Going to change it at the weekend all being well. How much coolant will I loose???? Should a litre of G12 be enough??? The coolant was changed only about a year ago so not going to flush it out!

    Paid just over 15 for stat and O ring, numbers if anyone needs them..........

    038 121 119 B Washer/ O-ring

    050 121 113 C Thermostat

    Open the collant bottle to depressurise the system completely and close it, there will be some loss of coolant, but 1 litre should be fine i guess
