HI I AM DAN I CAN HELP YOU WITH THIS, MOST THERMOSTATS ARE HELD BY PLASTIC CLIPS AND RELEASED BY TILTING THE BOTTOM OUT AND THEN PULLED OFF THE WALL. SOME HAVE A SMALL SCREW ON THE BOTTOM. IF YOU CAN PROVIDE A PICTURE OF THE THERMOSTAT OR THE BRAND AND MODEL NUMBER I CAN GIVE YOU MORE SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS
