I'm doing this right now, too bad the pictures are gone.
I'll try and snap some photos to make this DYI be even better.
So far, I got the thermostat out without loosening engine mount and jacking the engine.
I'm not sure I can get my fingers in to fit the thermostat again though, so might have to bite the bullet.
I removed the fuse box from the plastic bucket as well as the metal bracket that holds it down. That's necessary to even start to think about getting the thermostat out...
