2004 jetta 1.8t thermostat location

I have an '04 Jetta 1.8t Is the thermostat almost behind the alternator? would I have to remove the alternator to get to the thermostat housing?

It would be the easist way to get to themostat by removing the alternator. But if you have small hands and a swivel socket extension with your socket wrench you can manage it. Hope this helps.

thanks, I'm going to try that in the morning. I'll let you know how it turned out.

Did you get it all figured out? I am trying to do the same thing; and was hoping for some good feedback...
