A4 2.6 1996 ...Thermostat Location????

My 2.6 A4 Quattro doesn't seem to warm up very quickly and never gets much over the 60 degree c mark. Similar situation with the Oil temp. Also finding it only scraping through the MOT Lambda.

I think it's the thermostat and have purchased a new one ....but havn't a clue where it is located. Does anyone have any ideas?

I don't think the Quattro is much different from the FWD types where the engine is concerned.

Regards
Steve

I found this image of an A6 block having searched the forum. It looks like taking much of the cowl's off the front to get to it: -
