Re: block heater

>So time to talk about block heaters.
Assuming my audi has one ('86 5KCS), where would it be located at?  I 
looked all over the engine compartment and couldn't find one.  Next 
question, any particular model work better than others?  How hard is it 
to install?<

The block heater is installed in place of the center freeze plug of
the engine on the passenger side.  I bought mine from a dealer.  It is
a 400 watt immersion heater that replaces a freeze plug.  The plug is
not too bad to remove.  I drilled several holes into it and pryed it
out with a cold chisel.  A slide hammer dent puller may work well also.
