Question about 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup
You do not need to remove the manifolds to replace the frost plug heater.
If you are putting one in for the first time, it can be tricky to get the frost plug out.
If you are just replacing the unit, it is not too hard to get at. It is hard to see what you are doing as it is up kind of high.
It sometimes may even help to remove the front and transmission mount so that the engine can swing out of the way a little. It only takes a couple of minutes and can make access a little easier.

If you haven't purchased one yet I would look into a heater that installs in the lower radiator hose. much easier, especially if the plug accidentally starts to leak.
