Yes it is that easy. It should be a 4 pin connector located on the transmission side of the engine head in a plastic flange. Best is to wait for the engine to be cold. Unscew the radiator cap to relieve pressure but screw it right back on. On the 2.0L engines when you unclip the coolant sensor little or not coolant loss will happen if you do this. Just unplug it, pull out the clip, pull out the sensor, and the seal which sometimes stays stuck. Install the new sensor with a new seal lubricated with some coolant, make sure it's well seated and reinstall the clip. The sensor is well seated if the clip fits right over the top, just make sure both sides clipped into position. Replug it fill the coolant with VW original coolant mixed 50-50 with water if needed and done. If you have a fault you might need a scanner to erase the check engine or fault in the cluster.
What's the reason for changing it? Eratic temperature readings?

Honestly it is not very expensive to replace, but it is not extremely important. What it does is measure the oxygen/fuel level coming out of the engine. This tells the computer that the engine is either using the right air/fuel mixture or allows the computer to change the mixture slightly to allow the car to run properly. You could pull the sensor out and clean the terminal as it usually has alot of carbon build up due to its location, but this is normally a temporary fix. I hope this helps you with your problem.
