156 2.4jtd thermostat can't be right

Help please

Ive started to try and change the thermostat on my 02 reg 2.4JTD and am seriously doubting that the part supplied by my "normally very reliable" local motor factor is the correct part. The 1st clue came when various threads here mentioned the part cost around 60, the part I have was 7.25 + VAT. More reading of various how to links and threads and it slowly dawned that everyone was talking about changing whole casting complete with all its bits and pieces.

The part I have is by First Line part number FTS 149.83 and lists on carspares computer as Alfa 156 diesel.

I'm not prepared to go any further (so far i've only removed the battery and tray) unless I am sure I have the right part and at the moment I can't believe that what I have is going to fit inside the housing.

Can anybody out there throw any light on this ??

The stat comes as a complete unit with the housing.

That element you have will not fit!

Thanks David, I guess I knew that, just needed a second opinion.
I'll just lube the gear linkages and put it back together until I can get the right bit.

Alfa 156 2.4 jtd

This stat is for a Alfa 156 diesel but the 1.9 version not 2.4 JTD. The correct one is a great big lump with lots of hoses connected
