Welcome to the forum ...

The thermostat is situated on the right hand side of the engine (attached to the top of the block or head I think), you can't miss it; there are about 7 pipes going to the housing.

The thermostat and housing are integrated so have to replace the entire housing which costs about £50 to £60. Takes about an hour or so to do.

Loosen and remove the pipes in a suitable order and remove the temperature sensor from the housing. Once all this is free and you've removed the two retaining bolts, you should be able to just ease the thing off.

Remember to buy a gasket too. The old one will not come off without being destroyed in the process.

Why don't dealers automatically supplu gaskets with these sorts of parts?

You can get away will using Hermatite red gasket compound on Alfa Thermostat gaskets, they hold just fine.
