    2 days to remove the faulty one, and 2 hours to put the new one back!
    you need to loose the metalic pipe that's in front of the thermostat (the one that's blocking the thermostat) by removing the screws at the back of the engine, right below the egr valve (you need to loose it aswell) .this screws holds this pipe at the back and, and after doing this pull the pipe away from the thermostat just enough to remove it! it not easy but you can do it as long you have the right tools!
