Lower end of the motor on the drivers (Left hand side) roughly where the bottom radiator hose connects to the motor.

Is it OK if I type in intelligible English in this thread?

Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine. The thermostat is in the thermostat housing, which is the black plastic piece that the lower hose connects to on the bottom of the engine.

Just out of curiosity, how can something be "inbetween" only one thing?

If you don't specifically drain the radiator when you remove the hose it will definitely drain on you right there No problem, just make sure you have something to catch it when it all comes out.
