    The exhaust does though. If the thermostat is anywhere nearby then I'd not start work on the stat until it had cooled down.

    Everything is risk assessed these days. If it doesn't comply then work won't commence until it does comply.

    The water may not heat up but the rest of the engine does, trying to work on an engine which is roasting hot is not a fun time.

    even with a open thermostat id be suprised that it wont get hotter than 30c.

    the water temp gauge on modern vectras is run from the ecu,some have said that it wont register heat until it reaches 70c anyway.
