2000 Altima - Thermostat Replacement

Can somebody help me with a simple, detailed process on how to change the thermostat? Where it is located and whatnot.

Thanks

-Remove lower radiator hose, at the block.
-Remove the 3 bolts that hold the thermostat housing
-Remove "cover" and thermostat
-Clean old sealant off of both housing and "cover"
-Install new thermostat (make sure you put it in right, pay attention to how the old one was)
-add a new bead of sealant on cover and reinstall
