Default Lower thermostat housing

First Merry Christmas all!

I'm a little nervous. Have a coolant leak from both the thermostat housing and the tip of the bleeder. 2006 non turbo.

I'm concerned the bleeder will snap off when I try to replace it which will mean a new lower thermostat housing. THIS does not look easy to replace. Looks like three screws but hard to get to. Has anyone replaced it before I know it's very expensive.

Default Re: Lower thermostat housing

Steel screws were used in aluminum which caused galvanic action causin difficulty in their removal, heat may help but you would have to remove any plastic near it for fear of damaging it from the torch.
