Replacing thermostat and thermostat housing cover. Does the cover have to be turned a certain way?

There is no index on the part and the bolt holes are evenly spaced. So to answer your question... there is not a certain way it is positioned.

Nope, no certain way to turn the housing. 'Just' unscrew the three bolts and lift it off.
That explanation sounds easier than really it is :roll:

Oh, you mean putting it back again! Well, i put it back with the 'hanging' thing pointing backwards i believe. That way you have symmetry if i'm correct...
