Hi,  I have done thermostats on previous MK3 2l Duratec HE engines and they had an electrical connector.

 

I bought a good quality unit online and it came with the socket to plug in the connector.  However, when I went to fit it I saw that the existing thermostat does not have a socket and there is no plug there either.  This is unlike the three previous mondeos I have owned.  

 

The new stat looks identical in size and shape.  Do you think I should go ahead and fit it?  Has anybody come across this issue before?

 

Thanks, Ronnie.

I should have searched before asking.  I just found this post

So I should have bought the 90 degree stat without the connector.  I'm still tempted to fit it

Don't fit it. Get the correct one.

I made the same mistake and ordered the wrong one but was able to return it.
