Very carefully! ;D The thermostat in the 1996 Dakota is located in front of the engine. Follow the top radator hose to the thermostat. Remove the hose, the two bolts, then the current thermostat. Make sure everything is very clean. Then put the new thermostat in, replace the bolts, and replace the hose. CarGrrl
