fuel heater under filter, wire is loose from base

Hello,I just change my fuel filter on my 1997 7.3, and noticed the wire was not attached to base plate. Will this cause any harm? Do I need to fix this,and if yes, how? Thanks,Ray.

It's known to short out so most people just disconnect it

I disconnected mine in the middle of winter after it shorted and took out the PCM power fuse. No issues so far.

unplug it, take it out, and throw it away - NOW. if that wire slips off the post, you stand a chance on shorting out alot more than a fuse. mine shorted, activated the anti theft system that can only be de-activated by reflashing the pcm.. mine was a $500 lesson.. the truck does not need it, and with the fuel running inside the head anway, that acts as a heater also.
