97' E420 thermostat

My car is overheating and I suspect that it is the thermostat. Where is it located? I it where the upper hose attaches to the block? It looks like a few hex bolts have to be removed. They seem a little small and I can see them snapping off in the housing. Is there anything special to get this done?
