Re: Clio 2 Ph 1 1.2 Petrol Thermostat Replacement

That is a shocker of a price for a thermostat. I have ordered a Gates one for my Vel which is an alloy housing with stat in it. 23.
I like the bleed nipple on the housing but isn't that what a jiggle pin is for on a stat? ie to stop air under stat causing air locks.
Is the housing plastic?
