Default Suzuki carry thermostat

My mini overheats upon short drives. Could the thermostat be stuck,
and if so, how do I get to it, and are new ones available?
Also, how do you purge air from the system when radiators are removed and fluid replaced?

Default suzuki every thermostate

It is located in between the driver and front passenger seat. You need tor remove the plastic show and the plate on which hand brake and fuel tank opening lever is fitted. Open two 12mm bolts and remove the thermostate and inspect it and put it in hot boiling water to see it operation. If Ok refit it; To take the vaccum out from coolant, open the front bonet you will see your jack mounting just beside the jack mounting you will see the rubber tube attached with the body of jack mounting. Take out the tube and suck the air out from it using vaccum pump or a sringe of 50CC, once the air is sucked out start the car and give it 2000rpm and then see the tube water should come out from it if not suck it again while car is running and keep on adding the water in the reservoir bottle once the water started coming open the radiator cap and put the tube in it and increase the rpm to 2500 you will see water is runing in the radiator. Just put your thumb on the tube mouth and place it back and stop the car and refill the radiator with collant and leave open for a while till your car cool down and then tighten the radiator cap you will see the air is out from the system.

regards,
fida

Default Fida Radiator/thermostat question

Thanks very much for the valuable information concerning thermostat
check, and purging air from radiator.
Since I had removed radiator for repairs, I tried your system first for
purging air. It worked perfectly!
Mini runs great, thermostat kicks in, and engine temp right in the middle of the gage.
Again thanks!

I have just replaced my thermostat, removing the centre console is 70% of the job. It's not easy, in fact I failed to remove it and was happy at just getting to move out of the way enough to do the job.

Hi Umpa2014,

I have just bought a Carry 2004 and the engine temp needle does not get much above the minimum, and on the dive home (not done the math) but the fuel economy seemed bad, so I suspect the thermostat needs a change.

I saw you have done this a long time ago, but can you give me any advise on removing the "centre member" as I believe it is called.... in other words the bit with the handbrake build into it? Is the air bg stuff around the front of it? do I need to be careful? I don't want to create havoc on what should be a simple job really!!! Like you said it looks like 70% of the job.

Also does the thermostat housing have a gasket or is there a rubber seal built onto the thermostat itself? Just so I know what I am buying is correct

Was thinking that I may employ a small child to do the work for me.... with small hands. But I am sure there is probably a law against it or something or other... lol.

Any advice gladly received everyone.

Thanks in advance.

Does the term " Is the air bg stuff around" mean it has an air bag in it?
Is your radiator fan always running? (cold motor).
Can you post pictures?
