Thank you for doing the Bonneville thermostat writeup. Never heard of a tool you wrote about "hose clamp remover", but I will be buying one tomorrow. Always strained removing hose clamps, this looks like a great solution.
BTW- my 2000 Bonneville with the rear left window halfway down displayed a new problem, engine only heating up to 140 degrees, only blows warm air. With the consistent snow we have been having, not warm enough air coming out of the defroster to keep the windshield melted. Tomorrow afternoon I am replacing the thermostat.
