I have a 2002 VW Bora vr6 lower radiator hose that keeps blowing off the radiator after driving it for awhile. I was told that it is the thermostat going bad.??? If it is how do I locate the thermostat on this car? Help!
The flange connects to a plastic pipe (crack pipe) that can break with age... it's a good idea to replace it at the same time. If it is still in good shape, then just replace the o-ring that is used to seal it to the thermostat flange.
If you have problems finding it on your engine... post a picture and I will circle the area to look at.
