Hello,

My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you today.

I have enclosed the complete instruction for replacing the thermostat on your Quest, as you will notice, the instruction are for the Mercury Villager but you most likely know they are the same as the Quest and for convenience, I have sent the instructions this way.

I've gotten the 4 bolts removed off; however, I can not get the thing to budge. Is there something I need to do to loosen it? It's not doing anything...
Expert:  Ron replied 6 years ago.
If the 4 bolts are out. then its just stuck , take a small hammer and gently smack it a few times, it will come off.
