parts required for the job
water just incase you lost alot in the process
19mm spanner or ratchet spanner if you have one that will fit the gap
new sensor and about 15 mins

here is the sensor at the rear of the engine right hand side
fitted into the thermostat housing

to remove the sensor (be sure the engine is cold so you don't get burnt) unplug the sensor's electrical plug just push the tab down and pull
use the 19mm spanner to undo the sensor it will take a while as theres not much room it may be easier if you had a long reach 19mm socket
once you get to the point where the sensor is loose and ready to come out get the new one ready to do the switch to save on water loss

then its just a case of using the spaner to refit the new sensor
it does not need to be to tight it has ptfe tape and a copper washer so just a nip will do you don't want to snap it off
refit the elec plug
and check you water level (i only lost a dribble)
