VS acclaim / VX C2R
my girlfriends, VX C2R needs a thermostat replaced, would it be better to get a pro or DIY it?

Easy as Mate, Just remove the Bolts, Yes you will spill some coolant, Clean up both surfaces & remove old gasket, Remove old thermostat, Installed new one, Install Gasket, Replace Hose and do bolts back up tight, Top up coolant.

dont forget to bleed it a bit too!~ (bleed air from screw ontop of thermostat housing when cold then again when hot)
