They're hidden under the exhaust manifolds and not worth the hassle (in my opinion). You also should flush the heater by removing a heater hose and flushing. Hate to say it but you will probably find that your radiator is the reason for getting hot....and summer is just around the corner.

In the how-to section there is a guide on doing a proper flush on a VR/VS commodore. Very detailed, pics and explanation. I would be using that.
