@mario1981 check this video. Definitely a PITA to repalce the thermostat.
The steps are as follows:
1 Drain coolant
2 Release rear drive module
3 Remove fender liner in right rear fender
4 Remove poly-V belt
5 Remove intake manifold (2)
6 Unscrew nut (3) on alternator (G2) and remove charge current line (4)
7 Remove bolt (5) on alternator (G2) on timing case cover
8 Loosen bolt (6) and swivel alternator (G2) upwards
9 Remove bolts (7) and lay coolant line (8) with attached coolant hoses to one side
10 Remove bolt (9) on holder (10) on the oil pan
11 Remove bolts(11) and pass coolant thermostat (1) under the coolant line (8)
Catch coolant in a suitable vessel.
12 Loosen clamps (12) and detach coolant hoses (13) from coolant thermostat (1)
Note installation locations for coolant hoses (13). Installation: Replace clamps (12).
13 Remove holder (10) on coolant thermostat (1) When replacing coolant thermostat (1).
14 Install in the reverse order
