Default thermostat housing location? pls

Hi guys,

I'm going crazy trying to replace my thermostat..can't locate the housing. I am following the radiator pipe (upper) into the engine but the hole looks small for the 2 different supplied thermostats. Any ideas on where it is pls? Google images aren't that helpful. I have a 1.1 GLS auto maruti... In advance thanks..

2005...thanks for the reply.. Diagram makes sense and that was the first place I looked. Problem is; thermostats supplied by eurocarparts and eBay were too big to fit in the housing in the diagram. Also, if that is the right place, there is NO thermostat present currently. Is that possible even? Coming up to second winter driving around without thermostat? Heating was hit and miss ever since I owned the car....

It is possible that if it used to suffer overheating somebody may have removed it. It will over cool, especially this time of year and the heater won't be up to much either.

Thanks again for the reply...temp dial is well below the middle all the time.. Where is the best place (main dealer even?) to get the right part with the reg number? Not many people had the thermostat when I did enquire.. I used to own lots of Wagons and their thermostats were as tiny as this one I guess in order to fit.. Thanks again D..

Any Suzuki dealer should be able to supply the correct one from your reg as should most motorist shops though they don't always get it right as you've found out.
You could also try your VIN here and scroll to the relevant page to confirm your thermostat part number.

You are absolutely right! Should have gone to main dealer first instead of trying to save a quid which caused all the mess in the first place. Your help is much appreciated, I will update with progress..
