    Its the top pic on that diagram.

    Follow the lower rad hose and then undo the housing.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread. I'm sure it's been covered before but I can't find it using the search :( Is it advisable to drain the coolant before attempting to replace the stat?

    Not necessarily but you will have a nice stream of coolant up your sleeve for sure when you remove the thermostat !
