Also, make sure you put new themostat back in right place. Not backward other wise over heat or have to flush it out again and open it up and put in right place.

Yes. I'm sure you already flush the rad with Radiator Drain Plug before disconnected hose. Yeah. I left it on with hose and just unscrew two bolts and pull the thermostat housing. Should come off after unscrew the two bolts then you will see the thermostat sit in and just pull it out. You will see rubber ring on the thermostat too. New Thermostat should come with new rubber ring on it too.
