yes those 2 flat head screw should be loosened to remove from sub-base. I want to say there is really 3 just can't see the 3 rd in the pic but I am not sure.

The screws don't typically remove all the way they are held in place so you don't loose them. They do unscrew unit you feel they are not connected.

I think I see the third screw hiding under the red wire just below the .25 on the heat anticipator.

I got the control plate off. Just needed to use a slotted screw driver with a snug fit. The wire colors are actually labelled on the wall plate, only they've used a blue wire for what is labelled green.

Notice that the red wire is touching screws at both "R" and "A."

Okay. I shut the circuit breaker off for the furnace. LED is out at the furnace control panel. Left the circuit breaker for the AC/condenser on.

I decided to just reconnect the new thermostat wire at the furnace control panel rather than splice wires. Everything is clearly visible and labelled so no worries. I used the blue wire instead of green because that's the way it was. Silly, isn't it?

Put the mounting plate on the wall in the new location, level as instructed above.

Everything else went together fine. Still works. Here it is in the new location next to the utility closet door. That's the return air vent below the door.

Easier than I first thought. Just need to patch the wall now at the old location. Thanks much for the help. I hope the pics will help others in the future who might be relocating one of these old thermostats.
