s2 thermostat

Can the thermostat on the s2 be replaced without having to remove the waterpump or any of the belts, and, if a faulty thermostat isn't opening correctly apart from overheating issues would this cause water loss through the breather driving normally if it wasn't opening at the correct temps?
I can't find a receipt for a thermostat change at all with my s2 so i'm wondering if this could be the reason i seem to lose some coolant without any visible leaks or performance degredation.

I am curious about your problem as I recently had a similar problem with my S2. Did you pressure test your cooling system yet?

On my S2, the radiator had a small leak on both sides at the top. When the RPM's were in the upper range, the radiator would start sucking in air. After the motor would return to idle the air would force the coolant out the expansion tank overflow tube.
I could not tell there were leaks until I pressurized the system up to 20-25 psi, then I could hear the air leak.
