    I think its on the water pump at the front of the engine, on the right hand side as your in front of the car.

    The thermostat housing is on the underside of the water pump housing (right hand side of the engine as you look from the front). It's easiest to get to from underneath but unfortunately thet means you've probably got to remove the undertray.

    usually, if it's the same as my '98 1.8T, underneath black plastic elbow on water pump, with pipe then going up into engine bay area somewhere, becareful if yours is the same as the plastic on mine, it can be a bit brittle and break. if memory serves me right, then 2 or 3 10mm bolts.

    thermostats are cheap and to be honest if you are draining coolant etc to get to it i would just put a new one in instead of testing old one, could save time and money later.
