    That's the same model as mine. You need to remove the engine undertray and tackle it from below... I used ramps.

    It is near the front on the left (nearside).

    The bolts are a little tricky... I needed a really slim socket for one and had to loosen some kind of stabiliser bar that was in the way of the other.

    Use some grease on the new rubber seal to hold it in place when you are replacing the thermostat cover.

    When refilling the anti-freeze, half pull off the rubber heater hose (near bulkhead) until the small hole in the tube is past the stub. This allows the air to bleed out of the heater matrix. (Remember to push it back on when done!)

    Good luck.
