It's easy! Remove bottom hose from radiator and have large bucket handy to gather coolant. Undo both screws at thermostat and disconnect all hoses photograph or note where all hoses go. Install new thermostat and tighten both screws to 20-25nm. Reconnect all hoses, fill expansion tank & leave lid off.
Start engine and leave to idle, once engine gets upto temp the thermostat will open and coolant level will drop, so pour in remaining coolant. (Might need more new coolant).
Put cap back on expansion bottle. Check before and after driving for next few days and top up if necessary. .......Job done!
