Thermostat Replacement

Hi all,
got a 95 laguna 2.2d non a/c and im replacing my thermostat and flushing entire cooling system cause i have slightly below normal temp on temp gauge. also its not perfectly warm.
anyway, im taking themostat housing off and ive got a proplem. ive taken all torque bolts off (1 snapped), but theres one 10mm bolt that i cant access due to the aux belt pulley in the way. its near top of housing. would i have to take pulley off? was going to take it off but thought id ask here first.
thanks

Normally the thermostat has the coolant pipes running into / out of it IMO...are you sure what you have took off is the thermostat housing ? doesnt look like it to me.

well in this pic, the red arrow is the pipe from expansion bottle, and the yellow arrow is pipe from top hose of radiator. this is located kind of under the oil filler cap. you have to take air filter box off to get to it.
have i taken wrong one off. is it the one near water pump were the top and bottom hose of the radiator go in/out.

dunno know mate. Never really seen the 2.2d engine in the flesh. Was thinking more of on the cars I've ever owned (all petrol)

Your engine looks a different beast altogether.
