Changing Thermostat...

Has anybody had success with changing the thermostat when not also doing the 
t-belt?  I got chinsey last time and didn't change the thermostat at the 
last t-belt interval, now it appears that thermostat is not working right.  
I've got a new multi-function sensor in, and the temp. gauge only gets up to 
standard operating temparture after I've been sitting in traffic...usually 
barely makes it way off the bottom of the meter.

I remember in the past having to get in to the housing to tighten the bolts 
around the thermostat, and remember just tightening those bolts was a big 
p.i.a.  So any luck by anyone changing the thermostat?  Any special things 
you removed to help access  (timing belts, t-belt covers, and water pumps 
not included)?
