To take the thermostat apart would likely render it inoperable. These older style thermostats are rarely repairable.

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

Yes, that is a pricey thermostat. I would replace it with a Universal new one! It comes with mounting options and adapters and full installation instruction. See link below....
