95 Audi Cabriolet Thermostat replacement

I need to have my thermostat replaced on my Audi due to water circulation issue. Could somebody please respond with the proper procedure to do this. It seems as if most of the front end has to come off, but I'm sure it's less complicated than that.

Thank you,
FKH161

See attached image... this is all Bentley lists for
"Thermostat replacing".

Good news is that you do not have to touch the timing belt.

I haven't had the pleasure to see an engine bay of a B4, so
I can't say how much room there is... but I assume once the
serpentine belt, tensioner, pulleys are out of the way, that
you would have room to remove the plastic timing belt covers
and the thermostat housing etc.

-- sorry --
I had attached wrong image.

Thermostat is replaced. Your instructions helped quite a bit. Car does not over heat and engine is now cooling with circulating water.
