You have to pull the dashboard out to get to it. If you are mechanically inclined, then I suggest you obtain a factory service manual for your specific car(they can be found on eBay pretty cheap sometimes) and also go to TCCoA.com -that's Thunderbird & Cougar Club of America and do some research in the forums & tech articles. Also whether you or someone else does the job, do yourself a favor and put a ground wire/strap on the new one to make it last longer. This helps null the electrolytic reaction between the anti-freeze and the heater core which eats at the metal and causes premature failure. It's a all day job & you will need help to lift the dash and move it into the front seats, also do a thorough cleaning job on the blower box it's mounted in to remove all the anti-freeze or you will have a smell for quite a while after replacement.

The 2001 Mercury Cougar does not contain Freon. Freon was banned in 1996. I suggest you take this vehicle to someone who has the knowledge, tools, and skill, to repair the A/C system.

It is quite possible in a 1996 Mercury Cougar, that when the dashboard instruments all quit at once, there is a fuse that has been blown. Most of the gauges in the dash run off the same fuse in most vehicles.
