How do you replace a thermostat on a Nissan Maxima?

The thermostat on my Maxima is going bad, it says it is on cold air but blast warm air.

First disconnect the battery. Drain the fluid from the radiator. Then follow the radiator hose to the thermostat. Remove the two bolts from the thermostat and then remove the thermostat. Replace with new thermostat and bolts.

I think you have an issue with your air conditioning system not your thermostat. The thermostat is used to control the flow of warm engine coolant through the radiator. The thermostat might cause the heater not to warm up. If the a/c blows hot air then yopu probably need to refil your coolant or possibly fix a leak.

Remove the two bolts from the thermostat housing cover. Insert new thermostat with spring side facing engine and install new gasket. Replace thermostat housing cover and tighten the bolts. For 2002 to 2006 maximas replace air ducts and air cleaner case. Refill the radiator with new coolant.
