Hi digital desire,
I just desolder both parts and remove them as an assembly. No biggie.

Plain 'ol clear RTV silicon glue works beauty for this sort of thing. Silicon conducts heat well (witness the silicon heatsink insulators), and is easy to remove later.

Hi Casey,
I would tend to use some heatsink compound (not too much) and have the thermister lay there naturally. Then use the silicone to ensure it stays there, so applied over top only.

I've done it that way with good success.

Hi Chris,

Yep, that would work better..though I have to admit to gluing some TO-220 transistors directly to a heatsink in place of the grease/insulator with some RTV once in a power reg I built years ago . It lived, but I wouldn't suggest it is a regular practice.
