Changing thermostat in a V6 - fragile parts?
So I saw my mechanic today after getting the top hose changed. I asked about replacing the thermostat and he said to me that once the thermostat is removed, you have to be very careful not to disturb some O-rings inside or else risk a quick and easy job turning into half a day taking crap apart. Anyone who has changed a thermostat by themselves, have you run into any problems? Is it an easy replacement? I'd like to attempt it myself rather than let a mechanic charge me half a day's labour should they "accidentally" disturb the apparently fragile O-rings inside.
