First, are you sure they sent you the right one? Where did you order it? I've replaced other thermostats that were just the thermostat itself (no housing) but I've replaced a couple on my Trailblazer and it has always included the housing. I think we are actually the exception and not the rule in this case though. While it is possible to replace just the thermostat portion, it's kind of a pain. If I recall correctly, it's spring loaded and you have to compress the spring while rotating the thermostat portion. Then it comes right out. Assembly is the reverse- compress spring and rotate so it is held in by the tabs.
