Working on a 2013 Chevrolet Impala LS, 3.6L VVT Engine.
I need to remove the thermostat housing in order to replace the thermostat. After much pushing, shoving and swearing I managed to get the three bolts out of the housing, so it's loose - but I can't free it because the loom is in the way.
The loom is the black item in the center of the picture, with the thermostat housing to the left. The loom goes to the front bank of cylinders and the rear bank, with a lot of sensors coming off it - given the choice, I'd rather not disconnect them all. Wondering if anyone has come across this issue before, or has any suggestions on how to gain enough clearance to get the housing out?
