I'm stuck in the good ol' US of A and can't lay my hands on a manual for the 9-5. I saw the post for getting the UK Haynes book, but need help sooner. To wit, how much stuff do I need to remove to get good access to the T-stat bolt. The space is packed! Any sites anyone can recomment besides this one?
I've got a 2000 9-5 2.3l.

Many thanks

I'm told it helps to move/remove the delivery pipe. I don't really know, about to try this myself. :confused:

Thanks for the replies. Got the job done with a bit of experimenting and lots of patience. Very different animal than the 6 cyl. No specialty tools required, but a few might make it easier.

Thanks again.
