thermostat housing stuck - help?
Posted by Navid S [Email] (more from Navid S) on Sat, 15 Jun 2019 20:57:11
03' 95 Linear. Changing thermostat, last time the mechanic did it.
- I have the hose off the housing.
- 4 bolts off (2 10mm 2 13mm)
- There is a bracket there in the way (firewall side) through which one bolt goes
- Do I need to move the housing toward the firewall (out) and then up?
If so the bracket will stop the housing from coming out? How do I remove that bracket.
- I tried to just shake the housing off by pulling on it towards the battery side, but it won't budge at all - I suspect it must come out (towards firewall) and then slide it towards battery to get it out
I must be missing something. I tried tapping it with a mallet.
