    failed thermostat - inline replacement?

    hi all, i have a 2.5 tdi audi a4 b5 and the thermostat has failed, i am not prepared to take apart the whole front end of the car but am aware of inline mods that can be done, i am pretty sure my top radiator hose wont accept a thermostat from a renault 5 or volvo 340 as it is not big enough, so can someone point me in the right direction for an inline housing unit that will do the job? or is there a 28mm diameter thermostat out there that could fit inside my hose?

    many thanks in advance
