It should be labelled something like 30C 8s, meaning closes for 8s at or below 30 degrees Celcius. There are others for different M30 engined cars (such as 30C 12s or 35C 8s), but that's what most of us have in the US. If you remove it (not difficult, very little coolant should spill) it will have about a 1" long brass nose protruding down into the coolant passage.

But I'm sure it's the brown one.
