    I am completely confused(Must be me age!)
    I have read tonnes and tonnes of stuff on this website and Rover 75 website about "In line thermostats" and am as confused now as I was when I started.
    My 2003 TD4 Serengeti AUTOMATIC just doesn"t get hot(except when stopped in traffic) and what with the onset of winter nearly here I thought it was time to sort it out. I haven"t the space or knowledge to change the original Thermostat myself and neither do I have the cash for a garage to do it, so I thought I would fit an "In line thermostat" but WHICH? and HOW? I"ve looked at photos from owners who have fitted inline thermostats but their pipe work looks different to mine. Others have talked about a special in line thermostat which you cut the water pipe and it fits inside. So Which is the EASIEST to fit? and the CHEAPEST?
    Am I right in thinking if I look from the passenger side at the hose it"s the bigger hose with a slight S bend which attaches to the T junction.
    Any help, please. DSCF4574.JPG

    I've circled where the thermostat is fitted in your picture.

    Close up of mine. The fat section (circled yellow) is where the inline stat fits.
