Part Number Request: Front Strut Ground Strap

Post by occasional demons » Sat Dec 26, 2009 6:27 pm

Since these are inquired about time to time... That wire that seems to be "cut" all the time.

Those would be the ones!

Currently
Right $8.45
Left $10.45

Not sure what the difference is, other than possibly length?

So I guess I have a dumb question. I just noticed that my right side one was broken in half so I was planning on replacing it however the other end seems to just be connected to the plastic inner fender and kept in place by a plug. What good is it doing then? Shouldn't it be connected to metal??? I've been looking through the service manual and I found a picture that includes the strut end and it does call it a grounding strap but I have yet to find a picture of the other end...

I thought it was connected to metal ?? Which hole are you referring to, with the plastic plug on it ??

Pull the plastic plug and you'll see it will be connected to metal. If not, its on wrong. Thanks for the part number OD. :thumbup:

That is what I was thinking, which is why I was confused by the question....

It should be connected to the access hole for the trans mount. That part of the inner fender is sheet metal. The plug is there to keep road debris out.

Edit: The other side should be in the MM Bracket access hole.

Ah thanks I should have looked around a bit more and I probably could have figured that out. I fixed my strap and now it has also been moved to the correct body plug... At least on the passenger side there is another plug in the plastic part so that might be something for others to check as well as I don't think it grounds too well through plastic! Who knows how long mine has been like that... :D
