I take another look but I can't see anything down there, too much stuff in the way, mines stage 4, not sure if any additional pipework is obscuring the view

I took another look, can't see anything resembling spade connector or an earth wire/strap, can you send me a picture of where you're looking?

Hi you would not be able to see from the top. Looking from under the car there should be a bracket fastened to the bottom of the inlet manifold, this holds a small plastic vacume vessel. The bracket also bolts to the bottom of the cylinder block (just above where it meets the upper sump pan) i think the earth bolts to the same bolt i.e the one that holds the bracket to the block

sorry i sort of meant above the undertray but kind off lower down like under the inlet manifold if its possible to see. The position is just next to where the drive shaft heat shield attaches to the engine block
