All,

There is a screw cup that attaches from the backside and it has a ground wire with a fast on connector. Here is the Ford Master Parts picture.

It is not very easy to get to. I would recommend to remove the speed-o-meter assembly to access the area.

The fuse block is right behind it and makes for some pretty tight space there. I suggest small hands and patience

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I completely replaced my entire vehicle harness with a Painless Wiring setup. The new fusebox is smaller and leaves a bit more room for access.

Trained ferrets? For what, to chew your fingers small enough to get in there?
