Thermostat Replacement

I need to replace the thermostat on my 2005 330ci. Can anyone post a link of a video showing me how to do that?

Unhook upper and lower hoses. Un bolt thermostat. Unplug sensor. Pull out thermostat.

Installation is the reverse of removal. When finished, add coolant as necessary and bleed.

Took about 30 seconds to find. Yes, "lazy" does come to mind.

Put down the X box controller and type in E46 thermostat. It took me seconds to get numerous videos.
