    What engine code and where can i get a thermostat?

    Right... I have a 2003 1.8 16v astra convertible, what negine code will this be?
    secondly, i have the what seems 'common' issue of my temp guage hardly moving for ages, then moving up to just over 80 in traffic, and going back down again on the move.
    I'm guessing it's the thermostat, where can i get one from, how much am i looking at paying, and how difficult a job is it?

    Thanks for any help guys!

    best bet is speak to local VX parts and they will be able to confirm the price with you on the phone, i always note it down and then ring round elsewhere
