Follow the top radiator hose to a housing..looks like a pipe on a flange. Usually two bolts. Remove housing, put new thermostat in the same way the old one is in, pay attention . The thermostat also has 'block side' and radiator side; on it, use a a little high temp silicone gasket sealer on both sides Do not over- torque. Top off coolant.
