Question Help with radiator replacement

Last week I ran over a paver that damaged the thermostat and lower radiator, ordered a new radiator and thermostat and I'm in the process of getting the old one off. There's a white plastic plug for power to the fan, any tips on how this thing comes apart? I can't seem to get it to budge.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

Damaged the thermostat? I don't think so.
The thermostat is by the backbone under the tank.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

I guess that's not the thermostat I'm talking about.



There's this one located at the bottom/under the radiator, broke it off and dented the radiator. It turns the fan on when the temp gets high enough.

That's not the thermostat, just the fan motor switch
