Default 97 900se Turbo Thermostat Replacement...where is it?

I know this may be a noobie question and I did a search before I posted but could not find anything. I want to replace my thermostat in my car because the temp guage reads very low (I thought it did not work at all), but recently I was stuck in heavy traffic and after about 20 min the guage went all the way to the top, the warning indicator came on and then the guage went all the way back down. Since then it will overheat in bumper-to-bumper traffic. I checked the coolant level and radiator hoses and they seem to be fine.

Can someone post a pic of where the the thermostat housing is located on the engine?

Please?

Follow the big top side radiator hose (the one running next to the battery there) to the backside of the engine. It connects on to the thermo housing. You'll have to remove the turbo delivery pipe for the easiest access.

Brian - your battery looks a little naked! :wink:


Carthage - a little more help here - a pic of the back of the engine and the thermostat (it helped me find it the first time!)
