156 jtd thermostat

Well finally done the dreaded thermostat on my 2002 156 2.4 10v jtd..
after sorting out which thermostat I needed it was time to get my hands dirty, was a little apprehensive after reading about how hard a job it was but not as bad as led to believe..

First off remove battery , then undo the 3 bolts on the tray to ease things along..

Then off with the sensor wire , and the pipe clips luckily only few were the fastened type..removed these with a pair of long nose pliers.

once pipes off then can see the 2 bolts holding it on,

top one easy, however the bottom one is different

this involved undoing the nut then I bent the plate over and undid the bolt holding on the thermostat

replacement not to bad new pipe clips and topped up the anti freeze all in all took me hour and half including tea break ..

old thermostat looked bit worn

now next on the ever growing to-do list is rear disks ,, why did I get another Alfa ,,,, I remember .... I`m a petrol head

Did this on mine. Well done for completing in 90mins. The thermostat I bought had a different temperature sender so I had to unscrew the new one and put in the old unit. Or i could have changed the plug. Got mine from europarts by quoting the car reg I think it was about £70. The car still runs below 90oC but I can get hot air into the cabin. The old stat was obviously stuck open when compared to the new.
