Where's the thermostat housing on the F4R motor as fitted in a Scenic JA?
Is it the housing above the flywheel?

The wonderful Haynes manual mentions the thermostat for the 1.4, 1.6, and diesel motors but nothing about the 2 litre. Another manual I have says it's on the left hand end of the motor but doesn't specifically mention the 2 litre motor which appears to be a crock.

Also, is the thermostat replaceable on it own or does one need a housing with thermostat fitted. Again, there are various opinions on different websites but there are thermostats advertised on ebay for the 2 litre motors and the lood very conventional, even available from Tridan.

Good Friday, what a great day for the thermostat to cark itself.
