    Default Removing thermostat

    Is it straightforward to remove the thermostat on a 1.8 petrol? Slow warm up and poor heater suggest it's stuck open. Thanks.

    My 1.8 has a slow warm up but the heater is OK - gets warm in the car before showing on the dial. Runs at about 75-80oC on the dial after 3-5 miles. I asked at the dealers - its not an easy job - they wanted £100 to do it, but they said my thermostat was probably 'normal'.

    Many thanks guys. Checking the hose temperatures suggests the 'stat is closed when cold and does open, though perhaps sooner than ideal. Think I'll leave it be for now.
